Committee takes the decision to freeze assets of Brotherhood figures

Egypt's government announced on Tuesday that the assets of 572 Muslim Brotherhood leaders had been frozen, according to the decisions of the newly formed committee tasked with examining the issue.

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

Last week, Ezzat Khamis, assistant to Egypt’s Minister of Justice, announced in a press conference that a total of 132 Brotherhood leaders had had their assets frozen in execution of a court ruling in September.
