(Worthy News) - An Egyptian judicial committee on Tuesday announced an asset freeze of more than 1,000 charities tied to the banned Muslim Brotherhood, as well as those of hospitals and individuals.
The funds of 1,133 charities were to be frozen, the committee said in a statement, as well as numerous other entities it said were owned by the Brotherhood.
The decision came after a law was passed earlier this year to oversee the freezing of assets of “terrorists” and “terrorist groups.” [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
