Egypt's General Prosecutor Abdel Maguid Mahmoud considered moving former President Hosni Mubarak to a prison, state MENA news agency said Thursday.

Head of the forensic medicine authority Ahamed el-Seba'i will travel on Tuesday to the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh to check Mubarak's health and the possibility of moving him to Torah prison hospital. He will be accompanied by a cardiologist and intensive care specialists to evaluate the situation and is expected to submit a report about it. Mahmoud decided earlier Thursday to delegate medical experts to check the conditions of the hospital's equipment and preparations to ensure it provides all the medical requirements in order to transfer Mubarak to jail.

Medical sources in Sharm el-Sheikh International Hospital said that Mubarak's health was unstable and it was dangerous to move him to another place, according to MENA. Mubarak was now accompanied by his wife.
The ex-president was hospitalized on April 12 in Sharm el- Sheikh after he suffered a heart attack during questioning by prosecutors. The top prosecutors ordered to detain Mubarak and his two sons for 15 days on April 13. An Egyptian court ordered on Thursday to remove the names of Mubarak and his wife Suzanne Thabit from all public places, buildings, squares and institutions.

The court ruling included removing their names and photographs from subway stations, schools, streets, squares and libraries across the country. According to the court, caretaker Prime Minister Essam Sharaf must force all concerned authorities to remove the names of Mubarak and his wife from all public facilities. A judicial committee, formed by the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces to restore funds of Mubarak, his family and other senior aides, held talks Thursday with representatives from the World Bank and UN, who support Stolen Asset Recovery Initiative.
Members of this Initiative asked Egypt to prepare all necessary documents to demand countries send back the required stolen assets.

Mubarak was forced to step down on Feb. 11 and then moved with his family to Sharm el-Sheikh. He was detained on accusation of using violence against protesters during the demonstration. His two sons, Alaa and Gamal, as well as several former ministers and senior aides were also detained and questioned for accusations of misusing powers and harming the public funds for their own interests. Wives of Alaa and Gamal will be also questioned on Tuesday over the wealth of Mubarak's family.
 Polling on Social Media was more on target in 2016 election than the expert news media
