Jordanian court considers Muslim Brotherhood 'dissolved'

  • The ruling considers the group illegal because it did not correct its legal status in accordance with Jordanian laws

CAIRO: The Jordanian Court of Cassation has issued a ruling that dissolves the Muslim Brotherhood.

The ruling considers the group illegal because it did not correct its legal status in accordance with Jordanian laws.

The decision was made in a lawsuit filed by the dissolved group against the Department of Lands and Survey and the Muslim Brotherhood Association, a breakway group, that was given legal status in 2015.

The dissolved Muslim Brotherhood had requested the nullification of the transfer of land ownership and real estate to the legal group.
