CAIRO: The Administrative Judiciary Court ruled Monday to cancel the decision to reserve funds of the Ansar el-Sunna el-Mohamadeya group, reported Youm7.
The court said that the decision to freeze the group’s assets was issued by the committee formed by the Ministry of Justice to manage Muslim Brotherhood funds, which relied on investigations by the Homeland Security Agency and was not based on a law.
The ministerial committee only depended in its decision on the ruling issued by the Cairo Court for Urgent matters and hence confiscated the group’s assets without legal basis, added the court in its reasoning for accepting the appeal against the confiscation of the assets.
The ministerial committee lifted Monday the reservation of nine civil associations suspected of affiliations with the Brotherhood, reported Masrawy news website. In a decision issued Monday, the committee said that it verified that the nine associations are not related to the Brotherhood.
Youm7 also reported that the confiscation of about 20 schools and associations over affiliations with the Brotherhood was also cancelled two weeks ago after lawsuits were filed against their seizure.
