Egypt places travel ban on some ex-ministers – agency

CAIRO, Feb 3 (Reuters) – Egypt’s public prosecutor issued a travel ban on some ministers from the former government and at least one former ruling party official, and froze their bank accounts, state news agency MENA said on Thursday.

The ministers are former interior minister Habib al-Adly, former housing minister Ahmed el-Maghrabi and former tourism minister Zuhair Garana. Former National Democratic Party member Ahmed Ezz was also among those banned from leaving the country.

The statement said other officials were also under the ban which would last “until national security is restored and the authorities and monitoring bodies have undergone their investigations”.
