Egyptian authorities freeze assets of 132 members of the Muslim Brotherhood

An Egypt court has banned 132 members of the Muslim Brotherhood, including Egypt's ousted president and his aides, from accessing their personal assets.

The ban covers all property and moveable assets, including cash money, and is being carried out by a committee headed by the deputy justice minister, lawyer Izzat Khamis.

The ruling came from Cairo's Urgent Matters Court, which had already ruled in September to confiscate "all the money, assets, and buildings" of the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliated organisations.

Some of the Muslim Brotherhood members that are being targeted by the ban include ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, leader Mohamed Badie, deputy leader Khairat Al-Shater and former leader Mohamed Akef.
