Hosni Mubarak Hospitalized
April 12, 2011 by staff
The former leader was hospitalized in a hospital in Sharm el-Sheikh International, state media reported.
Mubarak had back surgery in Germany in 2004 and returned there in to have his gall bladder removed. He largely withdrew from public view in recent years until this year’s survey led him to make televised speeches.
Mubarak retired 11 February and handed power to the military of his nearly three decades of iron rule ended by a wave of popular protests that began Jan. 25.
Hosni Mubarak, Egypt’s former autocratic president, who was ousted by the revolution of the past two months, was suddenly hospitalized on Tuesday in the resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, security and military officials said. He has been living in Sharm el-Sheikh since he left office.
Mr. Mubarak’s hospitalization came two days after the prosecutor called for questioning on possible charges of corruption and other crimes.
The reason for Mubarak was taken to hospital, it was clear, but rumors have long been suffering from pancreatic and colon cancer.
Mubarak’s health was a taboo subject during his 30 years as leader of Egypt’s most populous country in the Arab world. As recently as 2007, a major newspaper editor, Ibrahim Eissa was sentenced to six months in jail for publishing articles about the health of Mubarak.
On Sunday, Egyptian prosecutor ordered the former president and his two sons, Gamal and Alaa, to be questioned in connection with a series of charges related to corruption and the use of violence against demonstrators during the country January 25 Revolution that overthrew him on 11 February. More than 800 people died during the uprising three weeks, according to the Ministry of Health in Egypt.
Security officials said Sunday that the interrogation of Mr. Mubarak would probably start next week.
