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.
