Gamal Mubarak demands his father be transferred from prison hospital

Gamal Mubarak, son of former President Hosni Mubarak, filed a claim demanding that his father, who is currently serving a life sentence in Tora Prison, be transferred from the prison hospital to save his life, security sources said Tuesday.

"Hosni Mubarak suffered an atrial flutter and rapid heartbeat at dawn on Tuesday, and [Tora Prison] doctors saved him from death," Gamal claimed, according to the security sources.

Gamal demanded that his father be transferred to a better equipped hospital and seen by a neurologist from the International Medical Center, said the sources.

The doctors monitoring Mubarak's condition were summoned and the head of laboratories at the Medical Complex of Qobba Bridge Military Hospital was also summoned to take a blood sample from Mubarak and conduct necessary tests.

Ihsan Kamil Georgie, a senior forensic doctor, was assigned by the public prosecutor to form a committee to carry out medical examinations on Mubarak when he was at Maadi Hospital and write a report on his condition.

The report said Mubarak's condition was stable and did not require surgery or a stay in the intensive care unit.

Based on the report, Mubarak was transferred from Maadi Hospital back to Tora Prison hospital.
