Mubarak 'healthy enough' to face trial in Cairo August 3

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2011-07-28

Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is healthy enough to go on trial for corruption in Cairo on August 3, Egypt's justice minister announced Thursday. Reports of the former leader's ill health prompted speculation the trial may be delayed.

AP - Egypt's deputy justice minister says ousted President Hosni Mubarak will be brought to Cairo for his trial on charges of corruption and ordering the killings of protesters.

Reports that Mubarak's health was faltering had raised speculation his trial, due to start Aug. 3, could be postponed or held in the Sinai resort where he has been undergoing treatment at a hospital.

Earlier Wednesday, the health minister said Mubarak was healthy enough to be moved.

Deputy Justice Minister Mohammed Munie says a ``final decision'' has been made to hold the trial in a hall at Cairo's Convention Center, according to the state news agency MENA.
