Egypt puts group of Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group on list of entities for five years

The Egyptian authorities have put the banned group of the Muslim Brotherhood on the list of terrorist entities for a period of five years.

The official gazette “Al-Waqa’i’ al-Misriyya” published on August 111, 2021 a Cairo criminal court’s ruling of blacklisting the Muslim Brotherhood for a period of 5 years. The decision came into force on the following day, August 12.

Meanwhile, the court also blacklisted 56 people belonging to the banned group for a period of five years.

The Muslim Brotherhood is outlawed in Egypt and designated a terrorist group. Late Mohamed Morsi, who was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guidance Bureau, had been president for one year before his regime got toppled over mass protests on July 3, 2013.

In December 2019, Egypt’s House of Representatives approved a final bill presented by the government to amend some provisions of law no. 8 of 2015 organizing the lists of terrorist entities and terrorists.

According to the act on the regulation of the lists of terrorist entities and persons issued in 2015, the inclusion of any group or person on these lists is automatically followed by the seizure of their funds and the issuance of travel bans. In case those designated as “terrorists” are abroad, they are placed on the country’s watch list.
