Alaa, Gamal Mubarak Visited by Wives for First Time

Khadiga al Gammal and Haydi Rasikh, wives of Gamal and Alaa Mubarak, were allowed yesterday to visit their husbands in Tora Prison.

They visited their husbands for the first time since jailed last April 13.

The two wives obtained an approval from the Public Prosecutor to visit their husbands only 7 days before they stand trial on Aug. 3.

Security sources at the prison said the visit was conducted at the officer’s room in the prison because the place allocated for visits was not available at the moment.

The same sources said Gamal and Alaa are felling very bad psychologically especially because they are just a few days away from their trial.

The sources said Gamal and Alaa inquired about their father’s health condition, given the reports that say his health was going down.

Gamal and Alaa are uneasy while Alaa cried when he saw his son during the visit, according to the sources.

Mubarak’s lawyer, Farid al Deeb, was not there during the visit.
