28 non-governmental organizations reportedly affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood in the Delta governorate of Qalyubia has been dissolved, according to privately-owned Youm7.

Egypt’s Social Solidarity Minister Ghada Wali ordered the dissolution of the NGOs over their reported links to the outlawed group.

The activities of 36 other NGOs were also decided to be freezed due to their affiliation with the Brotherhood. According to deputy social solidarity minister in Qalyubia Mohamed al Sayed, a committee has been formed to run these NGOs, pending criminal investigations.

The final verdict regarding the banning of the Muslim Brotherhood was handed down in 2014 when its political wing the Freedom and Justice Party was order to be dissolved. The ruling meant that the Muslim Brotherhood were to be unable to formally participate in any electoral politics, including local council and parliamentary elections, forcing the movement to disband.

Since then, the government has confiscated the assets of a number of Brotherhood-affiliated groups.
