Egypt's Court of Cassation rejected on Thursday the appeals of 1,200 individuals against their inclusion in the country's terrorist list.

The case dates back to April 2018 when a lower criminal court ruled for the public prosecution in case 620/2018, approving the addition of 1,529 individuals on the country's terrorist list for five years.

Those added on the terrorist list in 2018 included leading members of the terrorist-designated Muslim Brotherhood and their offspring along with other public figures.

Under the country’s anti-terrorism law, persons placed on the terrorist list are subject to travel ban and asset freeze.

The Court of Cassation's decision is final.

The public prosecution had accused those individuals who were placed on the terrorist list of harming the country's economy, providing logistical assistance to the banned Muslim Brotherhood, smuggling foreign currency, and pressuring Egyptian expats to halt remittances.
