Cairo: An Egyptian court listed 164 Islamists as leaders of terrorist entities, including leading members of Al-Jamaa Al-Islamiya (Islamic Group) as well as loyalists of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group, official MENA news agency reported. The list includes Assem Abdel-Maged, Mohamed al-Islambouli and Tarek al-Zomor of al-Jamaa al-Islamiya, a self-proclaimed anti-government Islamic group that committed violent and terror activities in Egypt in the 1990s, Xinhua news agency reported on Sunday. Cairo Criminal Court also ordered to seize their funds to be supervised and run by special committees. “These are judicial precautionary measures that seek preservation and protection of the society,” said the court, noting that an individual is listed as terrorist after proven guilty of crimes that ruin the principles and values of of the society. Leading members of Al-Jamaa Al-Islamiya, who have been jailed following the assassination of late Egyptian President Anwar Sadat in 1981, were pardoned and released in the wake of the 2011 uprising that toppled former President Hosni Mubarak.
