Egyptian ex-Mubarak returns to Tora Prison
Security sources said that former President Hosni Mubarak was moved from the Maadi Military Hospital to the Tora Prison Hospital, after doctors made sure that his condition was stable.
They added that Mubarak was moved in a motorcade of two armored vehicles, two ambulances and five central security vans, with the police cordoning off the area around the prison and blocking the road leading to it.
State-run MENA news agency reported that Public Prosecutor Abdel Meguid Mahmoud earlier on Monday ordered Mubarak to be transferred back to Tora Prison, where he would spend a life sentence for failing to stop the deaths of protesters during the 25 January revolution.
Earlier in July, Mahmoud ordered the formation of a medical panel including Egypt’s chief coroner, two Cairo University medical professors and the director of the medical department at the Interior Ministry’s Prison Authority. The panel was tasked with analyzing Mubarak’s health to determine whether he could return to Tora Prison Hospital.
Public prosecution spokesperson Adel al-Saeed said panel members concluded that Mubarak’s health had stabilized and that there was no need to keep him in the military hospital.
Mubarak was transferred to the hospital in Maadi in June after his health had reportedly deteriorated. The move caused public uproar after LE6 million had been spent to prepare the hospital in Tora Prison.

The convenient marriage between Iran and the Arab left would have been unthinkable only a few years ago, given the traditional ideological paradoxes between patriarchal Persian Shiism, on the one hand, and leftist orthodoxy on the other.Indeed, a casual viewer of Hizbullah's Al-Manar television, or the Iranian-funded Al-Mayadin TV, these days would probably think that the two Shia propaganda
