Authorities apologize for banning Morsi's son from traveling

World Bulletin / News Desk

The elder son of Egypt's ousted president Mohamed Morsi, Osama, said Cairo International Airport authorities had apologized for banning him from traveling earlier on Sunday on a "procedural mistake".

"The authorities had denied the presence of orders from any sovereign authorities to ban me from travelling," Osama told Anadolu Agency as he left the airport.

Osama said he would book a new flight in the next few hours.

He had earlier told Anadolu that he would travel to Malaysia to attend a course related to his PhD studies.

Cairo International Airport authorities were not immediately available to comment.

Osama had attended to the airport early on Sunday to travel to Malaysia.

At the airport, however, he was told that he would not be allowed to travel upon orders from some "sovereign" authorities, airport and security sources said earlier.

Initially, Osama considered the decision yet another episode in a series of law breaches and human rights violations, denying any link between his travel and the trial of his father.

Morsi, Egypt's first elected president, is due to appear in court on Monday to face charges of inciting the killing of demonstrators outside the presidential palace in Cairo in December last year.
