It was an indication of Mubarak's stabilizing health after he was rushed from a prison hospital last month. At the time, he was said to be near death after suffering a stroke.

Prosecutor General Abdel Maguid Mahmoud's decision means Mubarak could be back in prison later Monday. Adel al-Saeed, the assistant prosecutor and spokesman for the prosecutor's office, said a medical committee formed to review Mubarak's condition had decided his health was stable enough that he did not need advanced hospital care.
He was held in a military hospital before the verdict, and after a brief incarceration in a prison hospital, he was taken back to a military facility.
