Hisham Talaat Mustafa, a billionaire Egyptian real estate tycoon, was sentenced to death last year for paying a hit man to murder his Lebanese pop star girlfriend, Suzanne Tamim. Luckily, someone's remembered that he's a billionaire. Let that man go!
An Egyptian court has now accepted "the appeal presented by the defendants on procedural and content basis" and ordered a retrial for Mustafa. "The reasons will be issued later," explains the AP. We're just going to go with "that's how things work in this world of ours."
