Egypt's Chief Forensic Doctor Says Mubarak Is Well

Saturday, 22 Sep 2012 04:00 PM

CAIRO — Egypt's chief forensic doctor has told a state-run newspaper that Hosni Mubarak has never suffered a stroke and that he is not in critical condition, contradicting earlier medical reports that the former president's health was deteriorating.

There have been conflicting reports about the health of the 84-year old Mubarak, who was sentenced in June to life in prison for failing to stop the killing of hundreds of protesters during last year's uprising.

Mubarak was abruptly transferred to a military hospital after three weeks in prison amid reports that his heart had stopped. The state news agency said at the time that Mubarak had suffered a stroke.

Ihsan Kameel Gorgy told the Al-Ahram daily Saturday that Mubarak, who is now back in prison, only needs medication to treat blood circulation problems.
