Funds owned by 46 Muslim Brotherhood leaders were seized on Tuesday by a panel tasked with appraising the group’s finances.

Prosecutors have not released the names of the individuals whose funds were seized, but prosecutor Ezzat Khamis, who heads the panel, said they belonged to Muslim Brotherhood “international organisation.”

On 23 September, the Cairo court for urgent matters banned the Muslim Brotherhood’s activities.

Two legal actions and a challenge have been filed on the ruling, which remains unresolved.

Since the ruling, the panel has seized the funds of 702 Brotherhood leaders in addition to put the management of 1,050 NGOs and some 147 schools believed to be affiliated with the group into a government trusteeship.

On 25 December, the Egyptian cabinet declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organisation.
