Former ministers request satellite TV in their prison cells

Although Tora Prison is known to be the detention facility for celebrities, it appears uncomfortable for former ministers Habib al-Addly, Ahmed al-Maghraby, Zoheir Garrana and former ruling party official and business tycoon Ahmed Ezz. The big four are jailed pending investigation in charges of corruption.

They asked for TV sets and satellite receivers in their cells, but the administration refused their requests.

Ezz asked that his cell floor be covered with ceramics, which was also rejected.

Sources said that whereas the three ministers maintained high morale, Ezz seemed depressed.
