CAIRO, Dec. 30 — Egypt's Prosecutor-General Talaat Ibrahim Abdullah imposed Saturday a travel ban on 26 former government figures including former President Hosni Mubarak, his wife Suzanne Thabet, his two sons and their wives, official news agency MENA reported.
The list also includes 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 decision temporarily prohibits all of them from disposing of their funds and properties due to the ongoing relevant investigations of the Public Funds Prosecution.
Mubarak is currently serving life imprisonment over responsibility for the killing of protesters in last year's unrest, while his two sons are in custody on corruption and profiteering charges. Neither Mubarak's wife nor his two step-daughters are detained although they are included in the list. (PNA/Xinhua)
