Egypt: MB Terror Memo Included All Court Rulings Against Group, Members

The legal memo that was prepared by Social Solidarity Minister Ahmed el-Borei under a Cabinet order to designate the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) as a terrorist organization included many crimes perpetrated by the group, the Social Solidarity Ministry said Thursday.

The memo included the infamous Ismailia case, jail breaks, espionage case, Mokattam clashes and the MB association file, the ministry said.

It also encompassed all court rulings issued against the group and its history in terror operations, the ministry added.

The memo will be submitted to all international bodies, signatories to the anti-terrorism agreement, to activate the blacklisting decision, said ministry spokesman Hany Mahna.

On Wednesday, the Egyptian Cabinet declared the Muslim Brotherhood group a terrorist organization and banned all its activities in consonant with a court ruling issued in September.

The decision was mainly made after a powerful bomb attack hit the security headquarters in Daqahlia early Tuesday, leaving 16 killed and more than 130 injured.
