Minister of Solidarity Ghada Wali ordered the dissolution of 50 non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and the suspension of 27 NGOs’ boards of directors, which have been banned by court due to their affiliation with the Muslim Brotherhood, officials said Tuesday.

The ministry said in a press release that the NGOs were banned in five governorates, mostly in Beheira where 23 organisations were banned, 13 in Fayoum, nine in Beni Suef, three in Gharbeya, and one in Cairo.

As for the boards of directors, Wali said they were replaced by new appointments to keep their business running. So far, 420 NGOs have been dissolved amid an ongoing judicial and security campaign against the banned Muslim Brotherhood.
