Assets of Former Brotherhood Leader’s Sons Confiscated – Judicial Source

A committee established to assess the funds of the Muslim Brotherhood ordered on Wednesday the confiscation of the assets of the sons of former Brotherhood leader Mahdi Akef, alongside nine others.

A judicial source, who preferred to remain anonymous, told Aswat Masriya the decision was based on investigation conducted by security apparatuses which proved the said persons’ affiliation with the Brotherhood.

An urgent matters court ordered the confiscation of the Muslim Brotherhood’s capital and dissolving any organisations affiliated with it in September 2013.

The committee established to assess the funds of the Brotherhood, as per the September court ruling, has confiscated the assets of over 784 group members. It has also seized the organisation’s headquarters nationwide, as well as the headquarters of its Freedom and Justice Party, and 87 schools affiliated with the group.

Egypt listed the Brotherhood as a terrorist organisation last December and insists it is behind the stringent wave of militancy which has targeted security personnel since the ouster of former Islamist President Mohamed Mursi. The Brotherhood continuously denies the accusations, distancing itself from one militant attack after the other.
