Ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak will be questioned over multiple charges at his residence in Sharm El-Sheikh due to his deteriorating health condition, Ahram Online has learned.
Mubarak and his family, all accused — among other charges — of misusing their political power to accumulate illegal profits and assets, are currently under house arrest in Sharm El-Sheikh pending an investigation.
The 82-year-old former president was supposed to be summoned for questioning in Cairo, but chronic backache has left him unable to fly to the capital or leave his residence, sources say.
He had undergone back surgery in Germany last year but his back pain have become acute again, Ahram Online was told.
A legal committee is to be formed to conduct the investigation and to question Mubarak in the coastal Red Sea resort.
Mubarak was toppled on 11 February following a popular revolution that lasted 18 days. There has been no schedule set for a trial thus far.
His son, Gamal, is to be questioned over illegal profiteering on Sunday.
