Joint press statement

The undersigned organizations condemn the recent arbitrary travel bans issued against several individuals involved in public life, in particular human rights defenders, the latest being rights activist Gamal Eid, the director of the Arabic Network for Human Rights Information. The orders are effectively turning Egypt into a mass jail cell for these individuals. The undersigned organizations call for the immediate lifting of the travel ban from Gamal Eid and others who have been denied the right to movement and travel without any clear legal basis.
