Egypt's chief prosecutor has banned former Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif and other senior officials from leaving the country to escape corruption charges, the MENA news agency said on Saturday.
The travel ban has been also imposed on other members of the former Egyptian cabinet, including Interior Minister Habib al-Adli, Information Minister Anas el-Fekky and Tourism Minister Zaher Garana, the agency said.
The Egyptian authorities have also issued a travel ban on a steel tycoon and ruling National Democratic Party member Ahmed Ezz.
A corruption probe has been launched.
The Egyptian cabinet resigned in late January upon a demand by President Hosni Mubarak in an attempt to quell anti-government protests.
Mubarak, 82, who ruled the country for almost 30 years, stepped down on Friday after 18 days of heated protests demanding his resignation.
