CAIRO: The Administrative Judiciary Court on Tuesday upheld a ruling to ban Khadiga El Gammal, the wife of Gamal Mubarak, from traveling, Youm7 reported.

The court also scheduled a session for April 22 to hear appeals brought by Gammal and former President Hosni Mubarak’s other son, Alaa, to remove their children from a banned travelers list they were placed on per a request by the Illicit Gains Authority, Youm7 reported.

Gammal is the daughter of the construction tycoon Mahmoud el-Gammal, and has one daughter, Farida, who was born in 2010. She filed the lawsuit in November 2013, saying that the travel ban lacks a time frame and that she has the right to freedom of movement because there are no charges against her, Al Ahram Digital reported.

Gamal Mubarak, 51, and his older brother Alaa have been in jail since April 2011. Former president Mubarak, 85, was released in a court ruling in August 2013, and has since been under house arrest.

The Attorney General banned Mubarak, his two sons, wife, daughter-in-laws and grandchildren from traveling on Feb. 28, 2011 and ordered the freezing of their assets, the BBC reported.

Mubarak and his two sons are being retried for alleged complicity in the killing of January 25 Revolution protesters.

The next hearing of that trial is scheduled for Thursday, while the next hearing of their trial for “abusing the funds of the presidential palaces” will be held on March 29, Al-Masry Al-Youm reported.
