Prosecutor General Abdel-Meguid Mahmoud imposed on Thursday travel bans on several Islamist figures, including former Salafist presidential hopeful Hazem Salah Abu-Ismail. The Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, Mohamed Badie, was also banned from leaving the country.

Travel bans were also imposed on the Muslim Brotherhood's second-man Khairat El-Shater, leading figures of the ultra-conservative Al-Gamaa Al-Islamyia Tarek El-Zomor and Assem Abdel-Maged, Freedom and Justice Party head Saad El-Katatni, and Brotherhood leaders Essam El-Erian, Hamdy Hassan, Abdel Monem Abdel Maksoud, and Saad El-Husseini.  Pro-Brotherhood preacher Sawfat Hegazy, moderate Islamist Wasat Party head Aboul-Ela Madi, and pro-Brotherhood TV presenter Nour El-Din Haafez also received bans, among others.

Former president Mohamed Morsi, along with the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed El-Beltagy, Sobhy Saleh, Mahdy Akef, Mohamed El-Omda and Wasat Party's Essam Sultan were earlier announced to have been banned from leaving the country.
