The Cairo Court for Urgent Matters has ordered the seizure of funds owned by 285 people affiliated with the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group, including a number of public figures who currently reside abroad.
These figures include pro-Brotherhood TV presenters Moataz Matar and Mohamed Nasser, both of whom reside in Turkey, and Abdullah El-Sherif, who resides in Qatar.
The court order also includes Egyptian actors Hesham Abdullah, Hesham Abdel-Hamid and Mohamed Shoman, who are fugitives who have worked at pro-Brotherhood TV channels.
The decision also includes three entities that are affiliated with the group, which has been designated a terrorist organization by Egypt since late 2013.
The 285 defendants are barred from dissipating their properties, funds in their bank accounts, or stocks and bonds registered in the Egyptian exchange.
