Mubarak has heart attack on way to jail - report

2012-06-02 14:34

Cairo - Egypt's state media says Hosni Mubarak has suffered a "health crisis" while on his way to a Cairo prison hospital after being convicted and sentenced to life in prison for failing to stop the killing of protesters during last year's uprising.

State television and the official news agency report that Mubarak, 84, suffered the crisis while aboard the helicopter that ferried him to Torah prison hospital from the court hearing where he was convicted of complicity in the killing of about 900 protesters during the uprising that drove him from power.

Nile News, a state-owned news channel, said Mubarak suffered a heart attack. But that could not be immediately confirmed.

    Hosni Mubarak has no heart, so how is a heart attack possible??? Some is trying to apply for early medical parole I see...It's no suprise there! Before his arrest they found a schabir shaik medical parole, hand book.

      Hosni Mubarak also wants to SPEARhead his own initiatives, but like the portrait he was brought down...and can't stand FIRMLY now...just another DICKtator who has sucCUMbbed to the might hand of the law.

      schabir shaik's medical parole hand book is selling like hot cakes; hell instead of golf clubs he may just end up purchasing a golf course this time around...and several journalists as punching bags.

  • Ted - 2012-06-02 15:40

    All so called strong-men are deep down cowards of the last order. The world is full of very good examples and this is one of them. We are just not given the detail how he soiled his pants etc.

  • jonathan.maree.1 - 2012-06-02 15:43

  • ronald.radebe - 2012-06-02 15:48

  • Shepherd Kgakala - 2012-06-02 15:48

  • Mlondolozi - 2012-06-02 15:49

    hahaha a heart attack huh? here's a tip hosni, if you don't wana go to jail don't kill anyone.

  • duze.mthimunye - 2012-06-02 16:25

    Not that I'm heartless. I don't feel anything for Hosni Mubarak. First, I dislike people who think of themselves as being better than any living person. For him to rule Egypt for such a long time means that he did not see anyone who could rule Egypt except himself.\r\n\r\nSecondly, a great number of people died horrible deaths under his rulership. He definitely deserve to go to jail for a very long time to think about what could have been.\r\n\r\nThat goes for Charles taylor too. I don't care if he's been convicted by an international court which we feel is not properly constituted or its out to get Africans only. Taylor deserve what he got. If he comes out of jail alive, perhaps he would know and appreciate the value of human life vis a vis diamond values. It serves him right that he's sentenced to 50 years in prison.\r\n \r\nI am sick and tired of African leaders who do evil to their own people and cry foul when they are made to account for their deeds.

    OMFG I'm not reading this right. Where did he get trained - The International College of Absolue Corrupt Elite Autocrats - Class of 1999 together with Ghadafi, Mugabe and Co. Now he's got the \Shaiks\ as well ... Am I the only 1 recognizing the trend here?

      FinalJustice - 2012-06-02 18:48

      Kill 'em All!

  • mphotant.thelejane - 2012-06-02 17:00

    He is suffering e-Heart Attackitis, remedy for it can only be Zuma Parolitis. Voetsek!!!

  • Deograceos - 2012-06-04 09:49

    That is the reward for people who don't value others as human beings. Mubarak is paying back in the same currency. But he is already a dead man walking.They would have forgiven him because he has realized his mistakes at last.
