The condition of toppled Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak’s health has deteriorated further on his 83rd birthday, Ahram Online has learnt.‎
    
Mubarak, who was ousted on 11 February following an 18-day revolt, has been detained at the Sharm El-‎Sheikh International Hospital pending investigations into charges that he ordered ‎the killing of peaceful protesters, ‎accumulating illegal profits and persistently abusing his ‎unfettered power during his 30-year reign.‎

According to media reports, the ousted president’s health has been anything but ‎stable since his overthrow. Sources told Ahram Online, hours before his birthday, that ‎Mubarak’s depression notably reflected on his health. He even refuses to see family ‎members. ‎

However, the sources said Mubarak’s grandson Omar, a rarity in being a male Mubarak not in custody, will take him a cake to celebrate his birthday on 4 May, in an attempt to ‎lift his spirits.‎

Both of Mubarak’s sons, Alaa and ‎Gamal, have been remanded in police custody pending ‎investigations. They were ‎incarcerated in Tora Prison last month along with numerous former ‎ministers and high-profile ‎government officials.‎

A host of Mubarak’s supporters plan to rally at the ‎state television building in Maspero ‎today to celebrate his birthday.‎

Former President Hosni Mubarak
Nothing has been proved against him so it is time he was given a break. At 83 he has been punished enough, humiliated, thrown out of his job, lost his family life and his self-respect. No one surely wants to see a man of this age dragged through the courts, sentenced and maybe even hanged. He has done many good things for his country and now he is just a sick, old man who is reviled by so many.
