Egypt puts Morsi and 1,529 others on “terror list” – Middle East Monitor

The criminal court in Cairo has rearranged the names of former President Mohamed Morsi and 1,529 other members of the Muslim Brotherhood to put them on the state’s “terror list” for another five years, the official gazette reported on Monday.

A legal source, preferring not to be named, said the court’s decision was based on a new law passed by President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi earlier this month that allows the Muslim Brotherhood funds to be transferred to the state coffers transfer and not just freeze.

According to the source, the court’s decision was “issued in anticipation of a final July 4 decision by the Court of Cassation seeking to overturn previous judgments in order to seize the defendants’ funds or remove their names from the terrorist list.”
