Minister of Justice Ahmed Mekki says granting a pardon to ex-president Hosni Mubarak on health grounds is not up for discussion, given it can only be granted by the country's prosecutor general.
Mekki, in an interview with Al Arabiya TV Friday, said that no reconciliation in cases where blood is shed. On that grounds, a pardon for Mabarak in the case of involvement in killing protesters during the revolution is far fetched.
Mekki added however that legal experts have different opinions about the end of the period where Mubarak is held in remand and whether he should be acquitted on health grounds.
He further noted that there are other cases in which Mubarak is involved that are not yet looked into by the court.
