Youssef Mustafa Nada, is an Italian national residing in Campione d’Italia, a small Italian enclave within Switzerland. As a result of sanctions adopted by the UN Security Council after 9/11, he was designated as being associated with Al-Qaeda and hence subject to a travel ban, in effect imprisoning him within the 1.6 km enclave.

In Switzerland, headlines were made in September 2012 when the European Court of Human Rights ruled that Switzerland had violated the human rights of Egyptian businessman Youssef Nada by restricting his cross-border movements after he was put on a blacklist on suspicions of financing terrorism.
