Egypt imposes travel ban on Mubarak - Middle East - Al Jazeera English
Egypt’s general prosecutor has imposed a travel ban on former president Hosni Mubarak and his family pending further investigations.
The prosecutor on Monday also ordered the freezing of all of their financial assets inside the country.
The move follows a previous order for the family’s financial assets abroad to be frozen, which the foreign ministry had requested from foreign governments and financial institutions.
“The decision today is acting on complaints received on wealth accumulated by former president and his family,” a statement from the prosecutor’s office said. The statement did not elaborate on the complaints.
Mubarak is the most high profile and most senior official of the previous government in Egypt to have a travel ban imposed on him. Media reports suggest the former president’s wealth may total billions of dollars.
