Egypt's prosecutor general on Saturday banned ex-president Hosni Mubarak and members of his family from traveling, media reports said.
The travel ban was also imposed on Mubarak's wife Suzanne Thabet, his two sons and their wives as well as 26 former government officials. The government figures include former Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif, former Interior Minister Habib al-Adly, former presidential Chief of Staff Zakariya Azmy, former Parliament Speakers Ahmed Fathy Surour and Safwat al-Sherif, besides ex-ministers and former officials of state-run newspapers, most of whom are either detained or fugitives.
The order issued by Prosecutor-General Talaat Ibrahim Abdullah temporarily prohibits all of them from disposing of their funds and properties, owing to the ongoing investigations into the Public Funds Prosecution.
Mubarak is currently serving life sentence on charges of the killing peaceful protesters during the January 25 Revolution. His sons are in custody on corruption charges. Mubarak has spent much of his time during the trials in hospital, and his deteriorating health has been a great concern for authorities.
Mubarak, who ruled Egypt for 30 years, was thrown out of power following massive protests and was sentenced to life in prison in June.
