Army promises Hosni Mubarak he will not be prosecuted

Egypt's military have promised to protect the ousted President, Hosni Mubarak, from prosecution and to allow him to live freely in retirement in his Sharm-el-Sheikh holiday home, sources have told The Daily Telegraph.

Mr Mubarak, who was ill in the run-up to his resignation nine days ago and whose condition worsened as he flew out of Cairo, is now said to be recovering in his beachfront villa.

Despite heavy security outside the hotel compound owned by a friend where he is staying, army sources insist he remains free to come and go should he wish.

"The military has sworn an oath not to pursue legal action against Mr Mubarak," said one well-placed source.

General Ahmed Saleh, the deputy governor of South Sinai, which covers Sharm-el-Sheikh, confirmed he had no orders to hinder Mr Mubarak's movements.
