Cairo Criminal  Court rejected on Tuesday to hear the case of the 40 Muslim Brotherhood leaders’ frozen assets stating that the case is "beyond the scop of its authroities", which means that the earlier decision to freez the assets will remain in effect. The decision created lots of confusion since the criminal court which refused to hear the case today is indeed the same court which ordered the assets of MB leaders forzen more than a year ago.

Lead defense attorny Abdul-Monem Abdul-Maqsoud, told Ikhwanweb that he will appeal the decision within 90 days as stated by law. He descibed the conflict between the government and MB as political, not legal, calling on the government to let the people and the ballot boxes, not judges, decide the fate of this conflict.

The wife of Hassan Malek, one of 40 MB leaders whose assets have been frozen, criticized the court’s failure to decide the case and expressed her dismay that the country became controled by the State Security Forces in absence of a real government

She demanded the court to explain how it can argue today that the case is beyond the scope of its authrotity when it is the same court that has inititally decided to freeze their assets a yera ago!
