Media reports that President Mohamed Morsy’s sister Fatma is dead are false, said her brother Sayed Morsy on Wednesday.
“If such false news is repeated we will take legal action against the media,” he said.
Sayed also denied that his sister is receiving medical treatment at government expense, stating, “She is not even in a five-star hospital."
Sayed’s other sister, Azza, said the family had not asked for the government to pay for Fatma’s hospital bills. “We leave this to those who need it,” she said.
The president visited his sister in the hospital on Tuesday.
