'Help me Farid,' [Mubarak] said in a very faint voice. He said: 'I'm uncomfortable and I don't feel safe. I feel they are ordered to kill me.'
Farid el-Deeb, the lawyer for former Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak • Discussing the fears that his client, the former dictator of Egypt now serving an effective life sentence, has in dealing with the doctors at a prison hospital. Mubarak has suffered from high blood pressure, breathing issues, and depression, and yesterday had to twice be defibrillated when doctors couldn’t find his pulse — el-Deeb paints a picture in which Mubarak, faced with new doctors he doesn’t recognize, fears he’ll be killed. The very fact that Mubarak is at a prison hospital is a contentious matter, as many still incensed by his nearly thirty year reign have called for him to be held in a customary prison, but doctors have concluded his health won’t permit it. source (viafollow)

Hosni Mubarak sentenced to life in prison

Egypt’s former president Hosni Mubarak has been sentenced to life in prison after a court convicted him on charges of complicity in the killing of protesters during last year’s uprising that forced him from power.

In sentencing, Judge Ahmed Rifaat Rifaat described Mubarak’s era as “30 years of darkness” and “a darkened nightmare” that ended only when Egyptians rose up to demand change. “They peacefully demanded democracy from rulers who held tight grip on power,” he said.

Egyptian TV reported that Mubarak would be transferred from the hospital suite where he has been detained to Torah prison in south Cairo but he may have the right to appeal. [pictures
