Suzanne Mubarak, wife of ousted Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, is in a stable health condition and the prosecution office will decide where to detain her, said Minister of Health Ashraf Hatem.
Hours after the Illicit Gains Authority had ordered her detention for 15 days on charges of using her status to amass her wealth illegally, Mrs Mubarak was said to have suffered a "suspected heart attack and a sharp increase in blood pressure, which caused her to be moved to the intensive care unit at Sharm El-Sheikh hospital.”
Preparations were underway to move her to prison right after the Illicit Gains Authority’s decision, which raised suspicions over her alleged health problem.
Suzanne’s husband, Hosni Mubarak, has been remanded to police custody since 13 April at the same hospital in Sharm El-Sheikh after having reportedly suffered a heart attack when he was first questioned.
Both of their sons, Alaa and Gamal, are incarcerated in Tora Prison in south Cairo, along with numerous ex-ministers and governmental officials.
