Egypt’s ousted President Hosni Mubarak was moved to an army hospital from his prison clinic, reported Al Arabiya, following the country’s top prosecutor-general decision on Thursday.
“Mubarak will head to Maadi military hospital”, an army source told Reuters. Maadi is a suburb of Cairo.
It is not yet clear when Mubarak will be moved. The exact medical recommendations that prompted the decision are also unknown, security sources told Reuters.
Prosecutor-General Talaat Ibrahim had received a report from the Tora Prison Medical Committee that “recommended transporting Mubarak to another well-equipped prison”, state-owned daily al-Ahram quoted Hassan Yassin, official spokesperson of General Prosecution, as saying.
Mubarak, who ruled Egypt for three decades, was forced out in February 2011 after a popular uprising.
In June, he was sentenced to life in prison for his role in killing protesters during the uprising. He was admitted to a prison hospital that month following a health crisis.
