Egypt dissolves Muslim Brotherhood political party

Cairo, Aug 9 (IANS): An Egyptian court Saturday ruled to dissolve the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), the Muslim Brotherhood's political wing, and liquidate all its assets, media reports said.

The committee of the political parties' affairs, responsible for granting licenses to newly-formed parties in Egypt, had filed an official request to dissolve the party which was established after the January uprising that toppled president Hosni Mubarak in 2011, Xinhua reported citing the state-run Ahram online.

The Supreme Administrative Court's decision that dissolved the party was based on the investigations carried out by the state security prosecution which proved violations committed by the FJP of the conditions set for the work of the political parties in Egypt.

The State Commissioners' Authority had issued a report recommending the dissolution of the party, which was upheld by the court in Saturday's session.
