Egypt Judges Advise Dissolving Brotherhood Party

Monday, 07 Oct 2013 12:25 PM

CAIRO — A panel of Egyptian judges has recommended the dissolution of the Muslim Brotherhood's political party, a move that signals a widening crackdown on the group.

The judges' recommendation Monday said the party represents an outlawed group. The recommendations will be delivered to a Cairo court reviewing a case demanding the party's dissolution on Oct. 19.

The Brotherhood's party was registered in 2011, months after the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak — the first time the 85-year old organization formed a political party. It went on to win a majority in the first post-Mubarak parliament, and its leader, Mohammed Morsi, later won office as Egypt's first democratically elected leader.

Morsi was ousted in a popularly backed military coup in July. Authorities have since arrested Brotherhood leaders and cracked down on its protests.
