Minister of Social Solidarity, Ahmed al-Borai, said on Saturday that committees have begun their audits of the frozen assets of 1,055 Muslim Brotherhood-linked NGOs.
Borai told Al-Masry Al-Youm that the governing boards of those organizations have stayed unchanged until the end of auditors’ works to ensure that the interests of workers are not damaged.
He explained that those organizations can operate and receive funds normally, but cannot dispose of their assets without clearance from the monitoring committees.
The minister said he would convene within hours with Endowments Minister Mohamed Mokhtar Gomaa to discuss joining Brotherhood-run mosques to the ministry before assigning moderate preachers to them. Boraie said some of those mosques were “launching pads for violence and epicenters for extremism and sectarianism.”
