France’s Council of State issued a court ruling endorsing the decision by French President, Francois Hollande, to dissolve an association affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood. This Islamic association’s assets were confiscated and its officials put under house arrest.
Authorities accuse it of involvement in the financing and backing of terrorist activities and businesses. The ruling came in support of the French President’s decision to disband the Brotherhood-affiliated” Sanabel Islamic Association” amid suspicions that it has supported terrorists and jihadists, adopted a policy of discrimination and hatred and encouraged violence.
These accusations are based on Article 121-1 of the Internal Security Act, which in France are regarded as acts of terror.
