A ministerial committee formed by the interim government in Egypt announced on Friday the preliminary list of Muslim Brotherhood figures whose assets have been frozen in accordance with a recent court decision. The list includes the movement's leader Mohammed Badie and his deputies Mahmoud Ezzat, Khairat Al-Shater, Rashad Bayoumi and Gomaa Amin along with a number of other senior officials. Altogether, the assets of 572 individuals have been frozen by the state.
Wadie Hannah, the secretary-general of the committee, pointed out that the list includes members of "organisational structures of the Muslim Brotherhood in Cairo and other provinces." Former MP Azza Al-Garf and presidential aide Hussein al-Qazzaz have been added to the list, he said.
The ministerial decree stipulates the freezing of real estate funds, liquid assets, fixed assets, bank accounts, bonds and stock market shares.
