Egypt's official gazette published on Sunday a ruling by a Cairo court placing the Muslim Brotherhood on the list of terrorist entities for a five-year period, as well as placing the group's acting Supreme Guide Mahmoud Ezzat on the terrorist lists for the same timeframe.
On 12 January, a Southern Cairo criminal court placed the banned group on the terrorist list for five years, starting the date of decision.
The court also put 16 names on the terror list for five years, including Mahmoud Ezzat, who was arrested in August 2020, and former presidential candidate and ex-Brotherhood member Abdel-Moneim Abul-Fotouh, who was arrested in February 2018.
The court said the decision was issued as per law no.8/2015, known as the law regulating lists of terrorist entities and terrorists.
Under the law, any person placed on the terror list is subject to a travel ban and having their assets frozen.
The group has repeatedly been put on the terror list after the Egyptian government banned it in 2013 and declared it a terrorist group in 2013.
