CAIRO: Former President Hosni Mubarak, 86, fell inside his room at Maadi Military Hospital Thursday and broke his thigh bone, according to several media outlets.

The hospital released a medical report on Mubarak’s condition on May 25, stating that he is “in good health” and can be transferred to Tora Prison hospital, according to Youm7.

Mubarak was sentenced to three years in prison on May 21 over embezzlement charges. After the ruling was issued Mubarak’s attorney Fared el-Deeb said his client’s health was “deteriorating” and that he could not be moved from Maadi Military Hospital.

Tora Prison hospital submitted a report to Attorney General Hisham Barakat stating that the hospital is ready to receive Mubarak.

 Mubarak first appeared at court in August 2011 on a hospital bed. However, he has appeared on a wheelchair in recent court sessions.

Mubarak is scheduled to attend a court session on July 6 in the case of killing the January 25 Revolution protesters.

On the case session for the defense of former assistant to the Minister of Interior in January 2011 Ismail al-Shaer Wednesday, he claimed that the protests were “not peaceful or spontaneous.” He also claimed the Muslim Brotherhood “plotted to destroy Egypt’s national security” so the country “succumbs” to them.
