Egyptian Fans shocked as Aboutrika on terror watch list!!!

Egypt has added one of the countrys most renowned athletes, retired football star Mohamed Aboutrika, to a terror list for alleged ties to the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood.

Fans expressed shock and called the government move an injustice against the former midfielder who led the countrys national team for roughly a decade and is widely considered to be the most celebrated athlete of his generation in Egypt.

In 2015, a government committee froze the assets of the former player.Authorities accuse him of funding the Muslim Brotherhood, which the state designated a terrorist organisation in late 2013. The freezing decision was overturned by a court order in June 2016.

Under the countrys anti-terrorism law, any person placed on a terror list is subject to a travel ban and faces having their passports and assets frozen.

Abou-Treika’s lawyer Mohamed Osman said that the criminal court decision was illegal because his client has not been convicted in any criminal case, which is a precondition for placement on terror lists.

Osman said they will appeal the decision,issued by court on 12 January but only announced on Tuesday.

Mohamed Aboutrika — who was an absolute STUD before retiring in 2013. In fact, he was named African Footballer of the Year FOUR TIMES!

FYI, Egypt has designated the Muslim Brotherhood a terror organization. American politicians have introduced legislation to deem it one in the U.S. as well.
For his part, Mohamed DENIES the allegations and his lawyer says he will appeal.
