During the trial Mubarak’s lawyer Farid el-Deeb defended his client on the grounds of poor health condition. In June 2011, the lawyer revealed that Mr. Mubarak “has stomach cancer, and the cancer is growing.” The expelled President had undergone surgery for cancer in Germany the year prior and also has a medical condition related to circulatory problems with an uneven heart beat.
“Any talk of him being clinically dead is nonsense” said General Said Abbas, a member of the ruling military council. While the military leader acknowledges the fact the Mr. Mubarak had suffered a stroke and fell unconscious, he denied the reports that Hosni Mubarak is dead. Here is a report from Al Jazeera.
