Hosni Mubarak returns to prison from hospital


Public prosecutor in Egypt has ordered that former President Hosni Mubarak be returned to prison, saying that his health has improved, state media say.

Hosni Mubarak, 84, was moved from prison to a hospital last month after reports of a deterioration in his health.

He was said at the time to have had a series of strokes and to be on a life support machine. Reports that he was “clinically dead” were later denied.

In June, he was jailed for life for his role in the deaths of protesters.

Prosecutor Abdel Maguid Mahmoud issued “an order to transfer former President Hosni Mubarak from the Maadi Armed Forces Hospital to Tora prison hospital after an improvement in his health,” his office was quoted as saying.

Abdel Maguid Mahmoud’s deputy, Adel al-Saeed, said that a panel of doctors had earlier established that the former president’s “health is currently stable with medication, and it is considered good for someone of his age,” according to the AFP news agency.

It was not immediately known when Hosni Mubarak would be transferred to prison.

However, any report about Hosni Mubarak’s health has to be treated with a large degree of skepticism.


Whatever the truth of the matter, Egyptians will be fairly certain this is not the last they are going to hear of this ongoing saga.
