CAIRO — University presidents in Egypt intend to prepare lists of employees who ostensibly belong to the Muslim Brotherhood and other designated terrorist groups to be sacked from their jobs as per legislative amendments recently enacted by the Egyptian parliament allowing the dismissal of civil servants without taking disciplinary measures.

This comes after the Supreme Council of Universities meeting July 26 when it decided to task university presidents to draft these lists in a bid to exclude employees belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood, who are reportedly preventing universities from carrying out their educational mission.
