SHARM EL-SHEIK, Egypt, April 27 (UPI) -- Egyptian prosecutors said Wednesday there were concerns that transferring former President Hosni Mubarak to a military hospital could be risky to his health.
The public prosecutor's office said it had received a letter from the Interior Ministry calling Mubarak's condition unstable and warning that moving him would be a significant challenge.
"It would be difficult on both medical and security levels to make the transfer," the Interior Ministry letter said.
The ousted president remained under arrest at a hospital in Sharm al-Sheik where he has been since suffering a major heart attack.
The Egyptian newspaper al-Masry al-Youm said the Interior Ministry was still making plans to move Mubarak to an adequately equipped military hospital while the investigation into alleged crimes by his regime continued.
