The call for a second million man march was heard by Egyptians who returned in their thousands to the scene of the January 25 Revolution Cairo's Tahrir Square. The historical revolution succeeded in toppling the 30 year tyrannical and autocratic rule.

Protestors demanded the ousted President Hosni Mubarak and his henchmen be immediately brought to trial and face accusations including corruption, vote-rigging, abuse of dissidents, theft and much more.

The protests were initiated again to ensure the former officials do not return back to power.  According to Egypt's pro-reform camp the current military rulers who are supervising the transition of power are not moving fast enough to meet those and other demands to transform the country's politics.

Angry prosecutors are demanding the accountability of top senior officials from the former regime and others associated with it, including businessmen, politicians and security officials.

Thursday, witnessed a travel ban slammed by the Justice Ministry officials on Fathi Sorour, presidential chief of staff Zakaria Azmy, and ruling party head Safwat el-Sherif accused of citing corruption.

Others facing trial include the former interior minister, Habib Al-Adly over the deaths of some of the estimated 300 people killed during the crackdown on protests, which started January  25 and steel magnate Ahmed Ezz.

Mubarak and his family are currently under house arrest and their assets have been frozen abroad by authorities.

Revolutionaries noted that no charges have been filed against Mubarak since he was forced out of power triggering the protest labelling it “The Friday for Rescuing the Revolution”. Protestors went as far as calling for Mubarak’ public execution in Tahrir Square.

Despite concerns about the political path ahead numerous supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood, the country's best organized opposition movement, came out to Tahrir to defend the group calling on Egyptians not to fear them reassuring them that the group is not the bogeyman the ousted regime claimed it was.
