Egyptian Interior Minister Mansur Essawy said that ailing Mubarak will be transferred from his hospital detention in the Red Sea resort town of Sharm el-Sheikh to his trial location in order to quell public anger, Egypt’s official MENA news agency reported.

The ousted Egyptian president is due to appear in court along with several of his former associates on the outskirts of the capital city of Cairo on Wednesday,

He is reportedly receiving treatment for a heart condition.

Mubarak’s transfer to Cairo has been a key demand of people still protesting at the landmark Liberation Square.

Mubarak, his two sons, Alaa and Gamal, former Egyptian Interior Minister Habib al-Adli and six senior policemen are to face charges of ordering the killing of anti-government protesters in Egypt.

The Mubarak family is also facing allegations of corruption as well as the use of violence against protesters.

Mubarak was ousted in February following weeks of anti-government protests in Egypt that put an end to his three-decade rule.

The commission investigating the violence against the protesters in Egypt says more than 800 demonstrators were killed in the demonstrations.

Egypt’s judicial officials say the former dictator could be executed if found guilty of ordering to shoot anti-government protesters.
