Egypt's public prosecutor instructed authorities on Friday (April 15th) to move ex-President Hosni Mubarak from a civilian facility in Sharm al-Sheikh to a military hospital for further questioning, said Adel al-Saeed, a spokesman for the prosecutor’s office.
He did not disclose which hospital Mubarak will be moved to.
Also on Friday, state media reported that Mubarak could face the death penalty if convicted during trial. His trial is expected to last about a year, said Zakaria Shalash, the head of Cairo's appeals court.
Testimony by former Interior Minister Habib al-Adly that Mubarak ordered police to fire on protesters could convict the former president, Shalash said.
