Mubarak back to prison on prosecution's order


09:13, July 17, 2012

CAIRO, July 16 (Xinhua) -- Egypt's former president Hosni Mubarak has been moved back to the prison over the prosecution's order to his transfer, official MENA news agency reported Monday.

The general prosecutor, Abdel Maguid Mahmoud, decided earlier Monday to transfer Mubarak to Tora prison's hospital after his health condition improved.

MENA quoted official sources in the prison as saying that Mubarak stays in Torah's hospital under the supervision of a medical team.

The general prosecution spokesman Adel al-Saeed noted that the general prosecutor has ordered on July 4 to form a medical committee to conduct health checks for Mubarak to prove the possibility of moving him to the hospital in Tora prison in southern Cairo.

The committee confirmed that Mubarak's condition is now "stable in general" after the committee conducted checks and researches for him, which means there's no need for him to stay in a military hospital in Cairo's Maadi district, close to the Tora Prison.

The 84-year-old man, jailed on June 2, was moved from prison to Maadi's military hospital on June 19 after his health sharply deteriorated.
