CAIRO: Minister of Solidarity Ghada Wali on Tuesday dissolved ten non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and discharged the board of directors of 29 others over affiliation with the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood (MB) group, Youm7 reported.
The NGOs are located in four governorates including Dakahlia, Beheira, Minya and Cairo.
In March, Wali had dissolved 112 MB-affiliated NGOs in six governorates along with other 169 in nine governorates in February.
The Muslim Brotherhood was designated as a terrorist organization in December 201. Following the ruling, a committee was formed by interior ministry to seize assets of the groups’ members.
The NGO Law of 2002 states that each organization shall maintain a headquarters and board of directors, register with the ministry of solidarity and submit financial disclosure documents.
In September 2013, the North Cairo Criminal Court upheld a decision by former Attorney General Hisham Barakat to freeze the assets of prominent MB leaders, including Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie and his deputy Khairat El-Shater.
