An Egyptian court has banned all activities of the Muslim Brotherhood in the country. Its assets will also be confiscated according to the court ruling." The court bans the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood organization and its non - governmental organization and all the activities that it participates in and any organization derived from it, " said the presiding judge Mohammed Sayed. The Brotherhood has been outlawed for most of its 85-year existence. But after the ouster of former long ruling President Hosni Mubarak, it formed a political party and organized post-Mubarak elections. In June 2012 the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi won the presidential elections. However, on July 3 of this year the army overthrew Morsi after he rejected the military's ultimatum to reach an agreement with Egypt's opposition. The constitution was also suspended. In March, it registered as a recognized non-governmental organization.
