CAIRO: Eight Muslim Brotherhood members who belong to the teaching staff of Asyut University have been expelled, head of the university Ahmed Abdu told Youm7 Wednesday.
Mahmoud Hussein, secretary-general of the Muslim Brotherhood group currently in Turkey, is one of those who were expelled from the Upper Egyptian university.
The university’s administration requested every faculty to inform Abdu if there are teaching staff that have an issue with absenteeism to warn the instructors. Those who do not respond would be permanently expelled, Abduo said.
The university also expelled some instructors after they had been convicted by courts, he added.
Many members of the Islamist group who work at government platforms have reportedly been expelled or transferred in the two years following the 2013 ouster of President Mohamed Morsi.
The administrations of such workplaces have claimed those members were favored by the Brotherhood government in 2012/2013 and appointed in these positions, or are not trusted in “sensitive posts.”
