Egypt court upholds decision to unfreeze Treika’s assets
Egypt’s Administrative Court upheld on Tuesday a previous ruling to unfreeze the assets of Egyptian football legend Mohamed Abou-Treika.
Treika had filed a court challenge after the committee tasked with confiscating the Muslim Brotherhood funds and properties refused to implement a verdict that voided their decision to seize his assets.
The court said on Tuesday that the committee’s decision to seize Treika’s assets represents an attack on his private ownership and an abridgment of his civil and constitutional rights.
In April 2015, a government committee confiscated the assets of As-hab Tours, a tourism company co-owned 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”.
The administrative court accepted an appeal from Treika in June 2016 and overturned the committee’s decision to seize his assets.
In July, the State Lawsuits Authority, which acts on behalf of the Egyptian government, appealed the court ruling which ordered unfreezing of Treika’s assets. Meanwhile, the committee refused to implement the court’s decision, leading Treika’s lawyer to file a court challenge.
