Jailed former president Hosni Mubarak may be exempted from wearing the standard blue prison uniform, an official at Tora Prison has told Al-Ahram's Arabic-language website.

Mubarak and his former interior minister Habib El-Adly were immediately transferred to prison after being slapping with life sentences on Saturday for participating in the crime of killing protesters during the January 25 Revolution.

During the trial, which began in August, the ousted strongman was detained at the International Medical Centre (IMC) due to ill health. The Tora Prison Hospital was refurbished especially to receive him.

According to the source, Mubarak is being supervised by five doctors, including the head of the prison hospital Dr Sami Manaa, an intensive care unit specialist, and two nurses.

The source added that if Mubarak's health deteriorates, specialists from the IMC will be brought in to treat him.

Mubarak's wife, former first lady Suzan Mubarak, is expected to visit him for the first time on Monday.
