Amid countless conflicting reports regarding the deteriorating health of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, his attorney revealed Thursday that "Mubarak is in very bad condition. Fareed el-Deeb denied reports that the former Egyptian leader was in a coma and told Ynet that "while he's not in a coma yet, Mubarak may be heading to that direction."
Once the lawyer of Israel's Azzam Azzzam, el-Deeb confirmed that the last time he had seen Mubarak was at the Tora prison on Saturday, but refused to give any details on the content of the visit.

In interviews with Egyptian media, el-Deeb said that Mubarak showed no interest in the presidential elections and "only cares about getting the proper medial treatment." He noted that Mubarak's sons, Alaa and Gamal, have not been sleeping because of their father's condition.
Commenting about the sentence given to Mubarak and the former Egyptian interior minister, el-Deeb said: "They got life in prison because they supposedly failed to protect the protesters from the terrorists. The killings were committed by criminals and terrorists. This was in the verdict."

The lawyer also mentioned the testimony of Omar Suleiman who said that during the January 25 revolution, Hamas members were in Egypt with large quantities of weapons.
"I'm not afraid of saying the truth," he said. "People should know that Hamas and Hezbollah are terrorist organizations that have killed their children. This is not my personal opinion, this was confirmed by the court."
El-Deeb also slammed the Muslim Brotherhood and claimed that together with Hamas and Hezbollah they released their prisoners from Egyptian jails. He noted that those same prisoners had killed the protesters.
"If the Muslim Brotherhood wants to sue me, go right ahead," he said. "They were accused by the court of taking part in the killing of the protesters." El-Deeb claimed that the Brotherhood brainwashed Egyptians in an attempt to convince them that the police had killed the protesters.
