Criminal Court puts Aboutrika and Safwan Thabet on list of designated terrorists

Juhayna’s Safwan Thabet, footballer Aboutrika placed on terror watchlist. A Cairo Criminal court has placed the Muslim Brotherhood on its list of designated terrorist groups and reportedly included Juhayna Chairman Safwan Thabet, retired footballer Mohamed Aboutrika and Business News Chairman Moustafa Sakr in a 22-page list of allegedly affiliated “terrorists,” Al Shorouk reports. Thabet and Aboutrika’s assets will remain frozen for another three years and the court decision will prevent them from taking on any government roles. The state will also cancel their passports and place them on a no-fly list, according to the newspaper. Those on the terror list, including several prominent members of the Ikhwan and their supporters, face charges of funding and supporting activities that threatened public and national security. Others on the list include former president Mohamed Morsi, Ikhwan supreme guide Mohamed Badie, strongman Khairat El Shater, businessman Hassan Malek, and Islamic scholar Yussef Al Qaradawy.
