Hosni Mubarak’s grandson suspended from school

May 4, 2011

The grandson of Egyptian former president has been suspended from school for his “prolonged absence.”

Egyptian media said that the decision was taken after the school sent two letters to Omar’s family in Cairo and Sharm Al Shaikh warning them that the absence rate of Omar Ala Hosni Mubarak had exceeded permissible levels.

According to the report, Omar did not go to school since January 25 when the anti-Mubarak protests were launched in Egypt.

His mother is however trying to persuade the school to allow the son to sit in for the end of the year exams and not to lose the academic year.

The reports said that the mother wanted to explain to the school the critical situation that Omar was going through after his grandfather was toppled and sent to prison alongside his father Ala and uncle Jamal, Al Akhbar said.
