CAIRO: Egypt’s Ministry of Justice has authorized state-owned Misr Travel to run retried footballer Mohamed Abu Treika’s tourism company, according to a Thursday statement from a state-run committee tasked with inventorying and freezing the funds of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Ministry has confiscated Asshab Tours Co., owned by Abu Treika and others who allegedly belong to the Brotherhood. Abou Treika filed a complaint before the committee two weeks ago, but it was rejected.
According to the investigations carried out by Egypt’s Central Auditing Organization, the company’s funds were used to “finance terrorist operations” carried out after the deadly dispersal of the 2013 Rabaa al-Adaweya and Nahda sit-ins.
The Ministry also authorized Misr Travel to run seven other companies owned by Brotherhood members, the statement added.
Escorted by security forces and members from the government committee, Misr Travel officials headed to the headquarters of the confiscated companies to implement the ministry’s decision, Youm7 reported.
A month before the designation of the MB as a “terrorist group” by the former interim government in December 2013, the committee was formed to manage the assets and properties of the Muslim Brotherhood.
