A Cairo court on Tuesday confirmed orders from the Prosecutor General freezing the assets of 14 Islamist leaders who have been referred to trial since the July 3 ouster of former President Mohamed Morsy.

The 14 include Muslim Brotherhood head Mohammed Badie, his deputy Khairat al-Shater and the head of the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party, Saad al-Katatni.

Also covered by the decision of the North Cairo Criminal Court are hardline preachers Safwat Hegazy and Hazem Salah Abu Ismail.

The Islamist leaders face trial on a variety of charges, including resisting the authorities and incitement to murder in several clashes between Brotherhood supporters and opponents.
