Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak Dead since 2004?

Egyption President Hosni Mubarak
MIND SOUP: An Egyption lawyer has filed a lawsuit again the Egyptian Minister of Justice Mamdouh Merhi and others accusing them of misleading the Egyptian people by hiding the truth.

The lawyer, Hamed Sayed Makki, claimed in the case memo that the minister has been hiding the death of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak.

What's more interesting, or maybe unbelievable, is that he believe that Mubarak has been dead since 2004 while winning the past elections in 2005 (a year after his alleged death).

According to Horiyatna radio station, the lawsuit said that this is a "local and international scam to fool us about Mubarak's life."

The source revealed more detail about his alleged death. It said that Mubarak has passed away in Germany on the 16th of June, 2004 while undergoing an operation to remove a cancerous tumor from his ear.

The lawsuit adds that Mubarak underwent this operation secretly, and after the surgery, the doctor declared him dead.

Several radio stations announced this piece of news back in 2004, the lawsuit states. These include Monte Carlo radio station, the Israeli radio station, and London. After that, there was no word about the issue.

Accordingly, after his "unexpected death," Egypt's First Lady Suzanne Mubarak and her sons Alaa and Jamal allegedly agreed with the Germany, Israel and the United States to substitute him with a look-alike. This look-alike would be just an image, where effectively his sons would rule Egypt "behind the curtains".

Additionally, the lawyers says that the recent trip of "fake" Mubarak to Germany to undergo a surgery is also a scam. He asked "Why didn't Chancellor Angela Merkel go to Germany to visit the president if she didn't know that he is a fake?"

This scam is attributed by Makki to Israel's and US's advantage from a "stable Egyptian regime". In addition to that, he says that it would lead to the imprisonment of Mubarak's wife and sons.

Well, if this lawsuit was ever approved and went to court, there is a pretty easy way to identify the truth: DNA test. I personally think it is ridiculous and just a way for someone to get his 15 minutes of fame. But then again, similar things have happened before, and other people (like Michael Jackson) have been accused of similar things. We'll just have to see how this thing plays.
