Property of 14 Muslim Brotherhood leaders confiscated
Egyptian officials moved Sunday to seize the assets of Muslim Brotherhood leaders, including deposed president Mohamed Morsi, Supreme Guide Mohammed Badie and the movement’s treasurer, the tycoon Khairat el-Shaiter. The prosecution has launched an investigation against Morsi and other MB leaders on charges of spying, inciting violence and sabotaging the economy, as his supporters continue to demonstrate for his reinstatement. Interim Prime Minister Hazem Beblawy has named Nabil Fahmy, a former Egyptian ambassador to the US, as foreign minister in the interim administration he has putting together ready for swearing-in Wednesday. The prosecution claims it has incriminating video tapes of conversations in which Muslim Brotherhood leaders discussed the August 2012 attack near Rafah in August 2012 in which 16 Egyptian soldiers were killed.
