Former Egyptian MP who met with Israeli banned from travel

Egypt’s Prosecutor-General Nabil Sadek on Saturday banned former MP Tawfik Okasha from travel abroad, in what appears to be a consequence of his having hosted Israeli Ambassador Haim Koren for dinner last month.

Officially, the travel ban depends on the result of an investigation into the allegation that television presenter Okasha forged his doctoral degree – one of the documents he submitted to the electoral authority as part of his candidacy, Al-Ahram Online reported on Sunday.
