Legal committees have been formed by the Egyptian Ministry of Education to inspect 60 private schools owned by Muslim Brotherhood members and sympathizers, sources told Anadolu Agency on Tuesday.
The move came one day after the 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."
Sources inside the Education Ministry said that six Brotherhood schools have already been inspected.
The sources said the 60 private schools are either owned by Muslim Brotherhood members or follow curricula drafted on views of Brotherhood founder Hasan al-Banna.
According to the sources, 19 schools are located in Cairo, 14 in Giza and the remaining are in the Nile Delta governorates, Alexandria and the southern provinces of Assiut and Sohag.
Brotherhood sources, meanwhile, said there was no exact estimates of how many schools are owned by Brotherhood members or sympathizers.
The sources said that no university is owned by Brotherhood members.Last Mod: 25 Eylül 2013, 12:06
