Egypt places 50 Muslim Brotherhood leaders on terrorism checklist

The Egyptian judicial authorities on Monday ordered 50 leaders of the banned Muslim Brotherhood group to be placed on the state’s terrorism list.

Local media reported that the Cairo criminal court decided to include the 50 heads of state or government for five years from the date of the judgment. These include Abdel Moneim Abul Fotouh, Mahmoud Ezzat, Hassan Malek, Ahmed Abdel Moneim Abul Fotouh and Omar al-Saidi.

The court also decided to keep the Muslim Brotherhood group on the terrorism list for another five years.

The Egyptian authorities banned the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2013 when the group was added to the terrorism list after the fall of the rule of the late Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Morsi.

The Cairo Summary Proceedings Court ruled on January 18 to confiscate funds from 89 members of the banned Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group, which will be transferred to the state treasury.

The court ruling concerns a lawsuit by the Funds Inventory Committee of the Muslim Brotherhood demanding that they can spend the funds of the 89 terrorists.

The lawsuit included all heirs of the ousted President Mohamed Morsi, the former Supreme Leader of the Mohamed Badea group, and his deputy Khairat al-Shater, as well as members and allies of the Brotherhood: Safwat Hijazi, Mohamed al-Beltagy and Mohsen Rady, Asaad Sheikha, Abd al -Rahman al-Barr, Ayman Hodhod and more.
