The Egyptian government on Wednesday said it would draw up a committee to manage the Muslim Brotherhood's funds and properties following a Monday court verdict banning Egypt's oldest Islamist movement.

"The government is committed to enforcing the verdict issued by the Court for Urgent Matters regarding the Muslim Brotherhood," Egypt's cabinet said in a statement, a copy of which was obtained by Anadolu Agency.

"The cabinet will take measures to implement the ruling once it receives the rationale for the verdict," it added.

On Monday, Egypt's Court for Urgent Matters ordered "the dissolution of the Muslim Brotherhood Society, the banning of the Muslim Brotherhood group and all affiliated bodies, and the confiscation of all its offices and funds."

While the cabinet did not say whether it would confiscate the group's funds and property, it said it would "not take measures in this regard until a final court ruling is issued."

On Tuesday, Social Solidarity Minister Ahmed al-Borei said the Egyptian government had decided to delay implementation of the court ruling until a final verdict was issued.
