Ms. Azza Soliman, a human rights lawyer and founder of the Centre for Egyptian Women Legal Aid (CEWLA), and member of the Executive Committee of the WHRD MENA Coalition, intended to travel from Egypt to Jordan in order to participate in a training for the Mushawah movement, an organization promoting equity within the Muslim community, when she was informed by the authorities that she was banned from travelling. This followed a judicial order instructed that same day by the investigative judge in the case No. 173/2011, commonly known as “NGOs foreign funding case”, which also ordered the freezing of her personal as well as her law firm’s assets. On 7 December 2016, she was arrested at her home and interrogated as part of an ongoing investigation in the foreign funding case. She was released the same day on bail pending investigations. Azza Soliman is still under a travel ban.
