Improper Conduct by Egyptian Government

Adel Abdel HamidNovember 11, 2013 – Egypt: Improper Conduct by Egyptian Government: Returning the Dubious Protest Law to Ministry of Justice After Being Reviewed by Fatwa and Legislative Department.

The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information said today, “The Egyptian government is insisted on returning to the era of “custom-made laws” that inherited from dictator Mubarak’s regime. The cabinet has decided to return the protest law to Ministry of Justice again in order to be reviewed; after it was at the Fatwa and Legislative Department of the State Council, which had reviewed it and made amendments to some articles”.

After drafting the protest law, Minister of Justice “Adel Abdel Hamid” had submitted it to the cabinet, which approved the bill and then sent it to the Fatwa and Legislative Department that had eliminated its repression. However, the cabined decided to return the law to the Ministry of Justice.

ANHRI expressed its surprise at this improper conduct by the Egyptian government, which tries to avoid the legal experience of the Fatwa and Legislative Department, and sees that its affiliated Ministry of Justice is more perfect in legislation than the judicial body, which had reviewed it.

Returning the protest law to Ministry of Justice demonstrates that the government endeavor to tailor the law to be granted broad powers, ignoring that the legislative power that granted to the president is exceptional. In addition, the president along with the cabinet are incompetent legislative authorities.

ANHRI confirms its complete refusal of the protest law because it principally aims at confiscating the right to protest peacefully and the sit-ins. It will contribute to legalizing the impunity of police officers that had involved in violence acts. Likewise, it emphasizes the seriousness of the government’s conduct, as it should have respected the most experienced judicial body, the Fatwa and Legislative Department of the State Council, rather than opposing rights and freedoms of Egyptians.
