CAIRO: Egypt’s Supreme Administrative Court adjourned to Dec. 22 the ruling on the challenge demanding to lift a travel ban imposed on ousted president Hosni Mubarak’s daughters-in-law, Youm7 reported.
In March 2014, the court upheld a ruling to ban Khadiga El Gammal, the wife of Gamal Mubarak, from traveling over charges of illegal profiteering per a request by the Illicit Gains Authority.
The challenge was brought by Mubarak’s lawyer Farid al Deeb.
“The Illicit Gains Authority issued its ban groundless ruling without a specified deadline,” said Deeb in his challenge.
The decision is unconstitutional and is against the freedom of movement and travel granted by the Egyptian constitution,” he said, adding the law does not prevent the wife of a man who is being tried for illicit gain from traveling abroad.
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.
