The Cairo Appeals Court for Urgent Matters on Sunday rejected an appeal by the Muslim Brotherhood against an earlier verdict banning its activities and freezing its assets, a judiciary source said.

This is the second time the court turns down such an appeal. The court rejected the first appeal on November 6.

Policemen had beefed up their presence both in and outside the court, as supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi staged protests in different areas to mark the passage of 100 days since the violent dispersal of two pro-Morsi support camps in Cairo and Giza on August 14.

The Court of Urgent Matters decided on September 23 to ban the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood as well as all other affiliate entities.
