CAIRO - The lawyer representing former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak called on Wednesday for the military ruler of Egypt to be summoned as a witness in the trial.

He also listed other requests, including asking for a permit to get a specialist doctor to tend to Mubarak who has been hospitalized in the Red Sea resort of Sharm e-Sheikh since April.
