Egypt's former President Hosni Mubarak is on the travel ban list as he awaits court rulings on charges against him, a judicial source at the general prosecution said on Wednesday.

A Cairo misdemeanor court ordered Mubarak's release earlier on Wednesday and cancelled his detention pending investigations into allegations of receiving gifts from Al-Ahram press institution.

The decision to release Mubarak is final and cannot be appealed, the Middle East News Agency reported the source as saying.

Mubarak was released after the court deemed the conditions of detention pending investigation inapplicable to him, especially after he repaid the equivalent of gifts which he received from Ahram, the source added.
