An Egyptian court has decided to blacklist former President Mohammed Mursi, preacher Yusuf al-Qaradawi, retired football player Mohamed Aboutrika and other Brotherhood figures again for five years, the official Al Waqaea Al Masreya newspaper reported on Monday.

The Cairo Criminal Court also decided to freeze the assets of those who have been blacklisted since January 12, 2017. The court has ruled in favor of blacklisting them again for five years pending an investigation into a new case.

In addition to Mursi, Qaradawi and Aboutrika, there are businessman Safwan Thabet, Pakinam El-Sharqawi, an advisor to the former president, the Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide Mohammed Badie, Brotherhood official Khairat el-Shater and his children and others.

The court ruled in favor of blacklisting them and freezing their assets again because terror operations relied on the funds which the Brotherhood and its officials provided.

Investigations have proven that these figures funded the purchase of arms, training Brotherhood members and preparing them to carry out terror attacks and spreading rumors.
