Jordan'south Muslim Brotherhood split in March two thousand fifteen over whether to stay a department of the mother movement in Egypt. The grouping that slice ties is presently licensed, while the "old" Brotherhood is outlawed, despite severing ties with the Cairo movement earlier this year.

Badi al-Rafayaa, a spokesman for the "old" Brotherhood raid on the Amman headquarters was "illegal."

A Jordanian official said the headquarters were shuttered because the group isn't licensed. The official added that the grouping had secretly held internal elections, which was also illegal. Another senior official said the judiciary had ruled that property be transferred from the "outlawed" Brotherhood to the legal one.

Both spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to brief reporters.

The Muslim Brotherhood, the region'south oldest Islamist movement, and its affiliates won a series of electoral victories following the Arab Spring uprisings but provoked a backlash in several countries.

Egypt'south first freely elected president, Mohammed Morsi, hailed from the Brotherhood, but was overthrown by the military after a divisive year in power. Egypt later outlawed the group, branding it a terrorist organization.
