Egypt seizes Brotherhood property

Egypt is inventorying Muslim Brotherhood assets in Sinai as the judiciary considers a lawsuit for the confiscation of real estate including houses, land and farms owned by Brotherhood leaders.

The government of Hisham Qandil, the prime minister who served under ousted Brotherhood-affiliated President Mohammed Morsi, had allowed these leaders to buy public and privately owned real estate in Sinai in the name of agricultural development.

The lawsuit revealed that the committee tasked with seizing and managing Muslim Brotherhood funds had found documents confirming the Brotherhood’s ownership of large lands and farms in Sinai. It accused Brotherhood leaders of using those farms and lands in terrorist operations against state institutions.
