CAIRO, March 4 (Reuters) - An Egyptian appeals court on Thursday ordered a retrial of property tycoon and politician Hesham Talaat Moustafa, who was sentenced to hang for paying a gunman $2 million to murder Lebanese singer Suzanne Tamim .
Moustafa, a member of parliament for Egypt's ruling party and former chairman of the Talaat Moustafa Group (TMGH.CA), was convicted in a lower court of paying Egyptian security man Muhsen el-Sukkari to kill Suzanne Tamim, 30, in Dubai UAE.
If this appeal had failed, Moustafa and Sukkari would have faced the gallows unless pardoned by Egypt's president. Analysts said Thursday's decision in a death sentence case was not unusual but Moustafa's privileged background was likely to encourage talk about different rules for the elite. His original sentencing had caused surprise in Egypt.
"What makes Egyptians talk about politics interfering in this case is because the accused had a prominent position in the ruling party, raising doubts about the extent the law is applied to rich businessmen possessing political connections," said political analyst Nabil Abdel Fattah.
Judge Adel Abdel-Hamid said the court "accepts the request for retrial for both convicts" and that Moustafa and Sukkari's case would go to retrial in a criminal court, prompting some present in the packed chamber to cheer and ululate.
A statement issued after the ruling said the original verdict had "mistakes in implementing the law" and the original court failed to respond to several core requests of the defence.
