A state panel said on Thursday that the leading Muslim Brotherhood members whose assets were frozen last month include the group's spiritual leader Mohamed Badie and his deputies Mahmoud Ezzat, Khairat El-Shater, Rashad Baioumy and Gomaa Amin.

Egypt froze the funds of 132 senior Brotherhood figures in December in accordance with a court verdict in September which banned the movement.

The list also includes former spiritual leader Mohamed Mahdy Akef, prominent leaders Amr Darrag and Mohamed Ali Beshr, former presidential aide Pakinam El-Sharkawy and Guidance Bureau members Mahmoud Ghozlan, Essam El-Haddad and Abdel Rahman El-Barr, the panel's secretary-general Wadea Hanna told state news agency MENA on Thursday.

The court had also banned all activities by the Muslim Brotherhood organisation, and any institution branching out from or belonging to the group or funded by it.

On Wednesday, the assets of 572 additional Brotherhood members were frozen by the state panel, which was formed to oversee the assets of the group.

The committee has also put 87 schools owned by Brotherhood under the state’s supervision.

Ratcheting up a mounting crackdown on the group since the ouster of the Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsi from the presidency in July, the state designated the Brotherhood a "terrorist organisation" in December, citing the group's alleged links with attacks on state institutions and on churches.
