Court overturns decision to seize Abou-Treika’s assets
A government committee tasked with confiscating the Muslim Brotherhood funds and properties had confiscated the assets of As-hab Tours, a tourism company co-founded by the Egyptian star, over suspected links to the Muslim Brotherhood.
The committee stated that the company’s funds were used to finance “terrorist attacks”.
Treika filed two petitions to unfreeze his assets, but they were both rejected by the committee. The retired footballer then filed a lawsuit before the administrative court to appeal the committee’s decision.
The 37-year-old has reiterated his innocence of charges of funding the Muslim Brotherhood on several occasions, asserting he won’t leave the country over the committee’s decision to confiscate his assets.
Treika received a wave of support from a number of fellow footballers and public figures following the committee’s decision in 2015.
