According to the official MENA news agency, Mubarak received gifts worth seven million Egyptian pounds (around one million dollars) from the Al-Ahram press foundation between 2006 and 2011 when he was ousted.

The ailing 84-year-old president has appealed the life sentence and a court will look into the appeal on Sunday.

He was acquitted of previous corruption charges on a technicality, but his two sons who were on trial with him, are facing fresh fraud charges.

Several Mubarak-era ministers and officials are currently in jail for corruption.

Mubarak is currently being treated at a military hospital, where he was moved from prison, suffering from cracked ribs and fluid in the lungs.
