Egypt's High Administrative Court ordered on Saturday the dissolution of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party and the liquification of its assets.

Its parent organisation, the Muslim Brotherhood, was ordered to be dissolved last October in a similar ruling, and declared a terrorist group by the cabinet last December.  

Since the ouster of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi in July 2013, his group and loyalists have faced a state crackdown. Thousands are currently in prison and hundreds have been killed in clashes with security. State authorities accuse the group of waging militant attacks across the country.

In the parliamentary elections of 2011-2, the first after the revolution against Hosni Mubarak, the recently founded Freedom and Justice Party won the largest number of seats, at 47 percent.

Egyptian justice system has no credibility
It is a rubber stamp in the hand of the coup-makers. Their rulings have no credibility. The MP is still the most popular political group in Egypt. This is the reason the Sissi regime and its Israeli allies wouldn't allow for free and democratic elections to take place.

A follower of events
Did no one learn anything from Iraq and Syria? Once democracy is denied in an Arab country, extremist groups like ISIS are born. This decision will create a fertile ground for a new generation of extremism to grow in Egypt from individuals that have lost faith in democratic change.

Turn this building to a hospital
A hospital for all the Muslim brotherhood terrorists victims. When they are all cured blow the ugly memory of this structure to bits.

At last
Why it took Egypt so long to get red of a party that aimed to destruction of NORMAL Egyptian people. Why it took them so long to dissolve a party that ruined Egypt economy while its leaders had a big fat bank accounts. Thank goodness that we got red of them at last and we hope for ever. Egyptians do not be ruled by black flag supporters.
