CAIRO: Egyptian state TV says a former prime minister and Cabinet minister have been banned from leaving the country, a move that is often the prelude to a criminal investigation and a possible trial.

It says Egypt’s top prosecutor on Wednesday banned Atef Ebeid, prime minister from 2001 to 2004, as well as long-serving Culture Minister Farouq Hosni from traveling abroad.

The ban also covers Osama El-Sheikh, the head of state TV and radio.

The General Prosecutors also banned nine businessmen from leaving Egypt.

The bans are the latest move by Egypt’s military rulers against stalwarts of the administration of ousted President Hosni Mubarak and businessmen associated with his regime.

Mubarak stepped down Feb. 11 after a popular uprising, handing over power to the military.
