Egyptian judicial authorities on Monday ordered 50 leaders of the banned Muslim Brotherhood to be placed on the state’s terrorist list.
Local media reported that the Cairo Criminal Court has issued a decision to accept the 50 leaders for five years from the date of the verdict. 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 terror list for another five years.
The Egyptian authorities banned the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2013 when the group was added to the terrorist list after the fall of the rule of the late Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Morsi.
On January 18, the Cairo court ruled that the funds of 89 members of the banned terrorist group of the Muslim Brotherhood would be confiscated and transferred to the state treasury.
The court ruling concerns a lawsuit by the Muslim Brotherhood Fund Inventory Committee asking it to spend the money from the 89 terrorists.
The lawsuit included all heirs of the ousted President Mohamed Mursi, the former Supreme Leader of the group Mohamed Badea and his deputy Khairat al-Shater as well as members and allies of the Brotherhood: Safwat Hijazi, Mohamed al-Beltagy, Mohsen Rady, Asaad Sheikha, Abd al- Rahman al-Barr, Ayman Hodhod and more.
