Egypt’s Former President Hosni Mubarak Has Cancer - Defence lawyer

Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has cancer and his health is poor, Fareed Al-Deeb, a lawyer for the former President told Al-Arabiya television in an interview.

"He is not dying, but he might reach this stage soon" Al-Deeb told the network.

Few months back Mubarak resigned the Egypt President post.

Mubarak has been ordered to stand trial on August 3 on charges of killing of protesters, which could carry the death penalty. He is also accused of abuse of influence, wasting public funds and unlawfully making private financial gains.

He was admitted to hospital in April after reportedly suffering heart problems during his initial questioning.

His two sons, Gamal, who was once viewed as a possible future president, and Alaa, are also in jail and will also stand trial alongside their father.

The trial of Hosni Mubarak, due in August, could be moved from Cairo to the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh for ‘security or health reasons’, the head of the Cairo Appeals Court, el-Sayyed Abdel-Aziz Omar, told a private TV channel.

People will be remembering about the incident of  Mubarak blocking the Internet within Egypt to suppress the protests against him in the start of February month.
