A Cairo court has scheduled 23 September for a verdict in a lawsuit demanding the dissolution of the 85-year-old Muslim Brotherhood group and the confiscation of its leaders' funds.

The lawsuit, filed by the leftist Tagammu Party, demands a ban on any Muslim Brotherhood activity in the country and a freeze on its finances.

Egyptian authorities have launched a crackdown against the group following the ouster of president Mohamed Morsi — who hails from the group — by the military 3 July following mass protests against him and Brotherhood rule.

The group's spiritual leader, Mohamed Badie, and most of the group's high and mid-level ranks have been detained and mostly face charges of inciting violence against their opponents.

On 17 September, Egyptian prosecutors froze the assets of senior several Brotherhood leaders and other prominent Islamists as part of investigations into the incitement of violence at protests.

Badie, deputy supreme guide Khairat El-Shater, Secretary General Ezzat Ibrahim and senior member Mohamed El-Beltagy are among tens of prominent Islamists targeted by authorities.

fascism reigns in Egypt
Fascism can't survive much longer in Egypt. The alliance between the Communists and ther army JUnta is interesting. The mb will go underground and Egypt will become another Algeria.
