New photo emerges of Mubarak’s family vacation in Egypt’s North Coast

Published: Updated:

An Egyptian news website published Thursday a photo showing Egypt’s ousted President Hosni Mubarak vacationing with the family at Egypt’s North Coast.

The former president was seated in a golf kart next to his elder son, Gamal, while holding his granddaughter, Farida.

The family has been spending time at a resort in the North Coast, the most popular summer destination in Egypt.

Six years after he was ousted from presidency, Mubarak was released from detention after being cleared of inciting the killing of protesters in the 2011 uprising that ended his rule.

Since 2012, Mubarak has been confined to Maadi Military Hospital for treatment.

After he was set free, the former president returned to his private family residence in Cairo’s upscale district of Heliopolis.

One photo was leaked to social media from inside Mubarak’s residence in which he appeared in good health in the company of his eldest son Alaa and his grandson Omar.

The Mubarak sons, Gamal and Alaa, have been under the media glare since their acquittal in 2015 in the case publicly known as the “presidential palaces case.” Mubarak and his sons were sentenced to imprisonment on charges of seizing public funds.

They had several public appearances attending funerals, dinning at local restaurants and watching football matches a local coffeeshops.
