Egypt's defeated presidential candidate Ahmed Shafiq has been put on travel ban list, months after a probe was launched into his handling of funds under the former regime of deposed dictator Hosni Mubarak.


"The investigative judge decided to put General Ahmed Shafiq's name on the watch and travel ban lists based on investigations over his illegal allocation of 40,000 square meters of land... to Alaa and Gamal Mubarak,” Reuters quoted Judicial official Osama el-Saeidy as saying on Wednesday.

According to Egyptian officials, Shafiq, wasted public funds during the eight years he held office as the civil aviation minister under ousted dictator Hosni Mubarak.

Shafiq, who lost Egypt's first post-Mubarak presidential election to the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi, flew to the United Arab Emirates in June.
