Egypt dissolves 112 more NGOs ‘affiliated’ with Muslim Brotherhood

The decision is the second after the ministry dissolved 169 NGOs in February

Published: Updated:

The Egyptian Ministry of Social Solidarity on Sunday decided to dissolve 112 more non-governmental organizations (NGOs) "affiliated" with the now outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, local reports have said.

The ministry issued a statement saying the NGOs are being dissolved based on a court order that banned the Muslim Brotherhood “and consequently ordered the banning of activities and confiscating properties of organizations affiliated with the group,” according to the Daily News Egypt.

The statement said the listed NGOs, which are located in six different governorates, have not carried any activities for a “while.”

The decision is the second after the ministry dissolved 169 NGOs accused of being affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood in February.

Egypt declared the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization in December 2013 in response to a series of militant attacks on military and security sites.

The Brotherhood continuously rejects the accusations.
