Egypt’s Constitutional Court Rejects ...

16 Oct 2012

The head of Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC) Judge Maher al-Beheiry held a press conference on Tuesday, October 16, where he announced that the court rejects all constitutional draft articles concerning its powers.

Al-Beheiry described the position appointed to the court by the constituent assembly, which is drafting Egypt’s new constitution, as a setback and clear intervention in the court's affairs.

He added that the draft constitution represents an attempt to interfere in the affairs of the Constitutional Court, which is independent and above interference.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Judge Maher al-Beheiry, Head of Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC):
“The Supreme Constitutional Court was surprised that its regulating articles in the draft constitution were contrary to what the SCC recommended, which leads to its lack of independency required for it to do its duty and takes away major specializations of the SCC that are indispensable.”

Al-Beheiry said that the SCC general assembly would be in permanent session until the articles, which he described as threatening to the independence of the court, are amended.

For her part, SCC vice-chief Tahany al-Gebaly, Egypt’s first and only female judge, stressed the necessity of guarantees for the independence of the constitutional judiciary in the new constitution.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - Judge Tahany al-Gebaly, SCC vice-chairman:
“In order to treat the first draft of the constitution through the Constituent Assembly, if it remains, the SCC due to its historical responsibilities gives its opinion before all Egyptians and those concerned with the future of Egypt regarding guarantees of the independence of constitutional judiciary and its ability to perform its role.”

According to Article 184 in the draft constitution, the court can examine proposed bills, regulating presidential, parliamentary and municipal elections, but it also stipulates that bills are immune from any judicial scrutiny once approved by the parliament.

On Wednesday, Egypt's constituent assembly released its first official draft constitution.

Earlier in June, the SCC withdrew its representatives from the constituent assembly to maintain a neutral stance.

The SCC ruled in June that the law that regulated last year's parliamentary elections was unconstitutional which led to the dissolution of the People's Assembly (the lower house of Egypt's parliament), which had appointed the Constituent Assembly's 100 members.

MALAYSIAN COURT DISMISSES BID TO LEGA...
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
By Beirut Editor's Picks
12 Oct 2012

The Malaysian High Court dismissed an application today by four transgender individuals who are challenging the ban on Muslim men dressing and posing as women, which is found under Section 66 of the Syariah Criminal Enactment.

The four, who had been either arrested or penalized by the "Negeri Sembilan Islamic Religious Department" before, were applying for a judicial review to declare Section 66 unconstitutional.

Justice Siti Mariah Ahmad said in her judgment that the four applicants were indisputably Muslims and were biologically born as a man, so Section 66 applied to them. She also ruled that Part 2 of the Federal Constitution, which guarantees fundamental liberties to an individual, is overruled by Section 66.

Aston Paiva, the lawyer representing the four during the judicial review, said he would be advising his clients to appeal the decision.

The four applicants, Adam Shazrul Mohammad Yusoff, Mohammad Juzaili Mohammad Khamis, Shukur Jani and Wan Fairol Wan Ismail, argued that Section 66 violated the Federal Constitution's guarantee of freedom of expression. They also claimed that the "Syariah laws" should not apply to them as they had been diagnosed with "Gender Identity Disorder."

While several other Malaysians who were born male have sought to be legally declared women, this was the first legal challenge to the law that bans men from "cross-dressing" in Malaysia.

Egyptians To Be Executed For Killing ...
Ismailia Criminal Court, Cairo, Egypt
By U.S. Editor
24 Sep 2012

On Thursday, October 11, Ismailia Criminal Court sentenced and referred the papers of 19 convicts to Egypt’s Mufti to get his opinion on their execution for killing a young man inside a mosque while he was praying during Ramadan in 2010.
Two the convicts were present inside the dock while the other 17 were sentenced in absentia.
The execution verdict will finally be pronounced on November 10 after the Mufti’s approval.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) Judge Ahmed Ibrahim Al-Sabeely:
“The court decided with consensus of its members to refer the convicts’ papers to the Mufti of Egypt to provide the Islamic legal opinion on the case and set the session of November 10 to review the case. The session is adjourned.”

The first convict explained that they did it in revenge for his brother who had been killed by the victim’s cousin.
The investigations confirmed that the victim, a 24-year-old young man, was repeatedly stabbed in the head, the back and the stomach, and the convicts professed committing the crime and reenacted it before the prosecution.

An exclusive report on child prisoners that are awaiting execution in Yemen. Only five countries - Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Yemen - continue the execution of minors void of international law which “prohibits, without exception, the execution of individuals for crimes committed before they turn eighteen.”

The story evolves around now eighteen years-old Nadim al-Azaazi arrested three years ago on murder charges. The teenager endured beatings and interrogation at his local prison station before transferring to the child prison in Sanaa.

Having gained access to the prison the reporters reveal seventy-seven minors, aged between fifteen to eighteen years-of-age, thirty-five of which face execution. The sentencing of Nadim has been delayed after the inmates went on hunger strike in solidarity with Nadim’s pending death penalty.

Cairo, Egypt | April 17, 2012

Amid tight security measures and crowds of protestors, and family members of victims, Port Said Criminal Court, held at the Police Academy in Cairo, adjourned the trial of some 70 men accused in connection with the killing of at least 74 Al-Ahly fans in Port Said was adjourned until May 5 when the court will hear the testimonies of witnesses.

The trial will resume for five consecutive days until May 9, during which time witnesses will give their testimonies, beginning with forensic physicians on day one.

Hundreds of Al-Ahly fans protested outside the court with dances and drumbeats, raising Al-Ahly flags and posters of victims, and demanding retaliation for the riot victims.

Lawyers as well as the family members of the victims seemed relatively satisfied with the course of the trial.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Saleh Farag, father of a victim of the Port Said soccer riot violence:
"The case is going well, praise be to Allah. The course of the case will be very well and we're satisfied with all that happened in the session. The defendants' lawyers of course wanted to prove them not guilty, demanded their release and demanded the trial to be moved to Port Said. They demanded many things. The judge didn’t listen to all of that and decided the trial to be adjourned to May 5." Among the defendants are nine police officers and several officials of Port Said Stadium.
Some of Al-Ahly ultras believe the tragedy was a conspiracy by the police and the ruling military for political reasons while others believe it was all by Port Said fans.
The bloody riots took place on February 1, after a soccer game between Cairo's Al-Ahly and Port Said's Al-Masry in the coastal city of Port Said, where thousands of allegedly riotous fans stormed into the field after the game causing chaos and bloody confrontations, leaving 74 dead and hundreds wounded.

Disqualified Presidential Candidates ...

16 Apr 2012

Cairo, Egypt | April 16, 2012

On the last day to appeal the disqualification decision of Egypt's Supreme Presidential Election Commission (SPEC), three of the ten disqualified candidates and their representatives paid a visit to the commission on Monday, April 16, to appeal the decision with hopes to rejoin the presidential race.
Liberal candidate Ayman Nour, the main opponent of former president Hosni Mubarak in the 2005 elections, said the SPEC decision to disqualify him, which was based on fraud charges handed down during the rule of the former regime, was "incorrect,” and that he submitted a memo to be discussed with the commission Tuesday.
Nour was banned from politics in 2005 after being imprisoned for charges of fraud by the Mubarak regime. Egyptian law bans candidates with criminal records from running for political office.
However, the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Force (SCAF) gave Nour an official pardon late March. Due to his full pardon, Nour believes he is legally eligible to compete as a viable presidential candidate.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Ayman Nour, disqualified liberal presidential candidate and Al-Ghad Party leader:
"It's not important who will be president and who will be vice president. The most important thing is that Egypt passes through this difficult moment. We appeal but we will not block the path of democratic process. We appeal and say that this is our right, as we have been oppressed seven years ago (in 2005 elections) and we're being oppressed until this moment. But this is OK for the sake of Egypt." Former vice-president Omar Suleiman's presidential campaign and office manager said little to reporters about Suleiman's chances to rejoin the race.
On the other hand, the attorney for the Muslim Brotherhood reaffirmed its certainty about the sound legal grounds of the group's candidate Khairat al-Shater, who was also disqualified due to a criminal record during Mubarak's presidency.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Colonel Hussein Sherif, Omar Suleiman's presidential campaign and office manager:
"I have no reply. The answer is with the commission.”

SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) – Abdel Moneim Abdel Maqsoud, Muslim Brotherhood attorney:
"There has been a pardon for the original punishment and the subsequent penalties, including all criminal affects based on that ruling. Accordingly, the pardon terminates all legal hindrances preventing Eng. Khairat al-Shater from practicing his political rights." It is the last day for the ten candidates to appeal the disqualification decision announced Saturday.
Analysts say Suleiman's chances to rejoin the race after completing some papers are high, while Al-Shater, Nour and Salafi sheikh Hazem Salah Abu Ismail are not likely to rejoin.
Egypt's historical presidential elections will be held May 23 and 24.

Cairo, Egypt | April 1, 2012

Cairo Criminal Court adjourned on Sunday, April 1, the trial of iron tycoon and leader of the dismantled ruling National Democratic Party (NDP) Ahmed Ezz for money laundering of EGP 6 billion and 429 million (about USD 1.065 billion) to May 6.
[1 USD = 6.03800 EGP]

The delay was due to the absence of Ezz's lawyer Farid al-Deeb, who is also the lawyer of ousted president Hosni Mubarak, as he reportedly suffered angina and travelled to France for treatment.
Unprecedentedly, power went out and the judge ordered Ezz to come out of the dock to be seen. Some allege the power was deliberately cut by the security men to prevent photographers and cameramen from shooting.

In previous trials, the prosecution said Ezz profiteered from his position as CEO of Al-Dikhila steel factory, in which the state is a main shareholder, from 2001 to 2011.

In September 2011, Ezz was sent to ten years in prison for financial corruption.

US Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday, March 15, in a press conference in Cairo, that the relations between the United States and Egypt would remain strong despite the controversial NGO issue which she described as "a bump in the road" of the strong ties between the two countries.
SOUNDBITE 1 (English) - US congressional minority leader Nancy Pelosi:
"Whatever the NGO issue was, it should not be a barrier to the future possibilities between our two countries. The Egyptian people, if they want to have cooperation from the United States in their interest and we want to help them in our interest, let us proceed with the greatest respect and not let bump on the road, which you have with many countries, be an obstacle to that."

Pelosi commended Egypt’s recent elections of the two houses of the parliament as the first step towards democracy, reaffirming that the stability of Egypt serves the US interests in the region.
She also lowered the tone of Washington's threat to cut off financial aid to Egypt, saying that the United States would be there for Egypt provided the Egyptians were aware of the friendship between the two countries.
SOUNDBITE 2 (English) - US congressional minority leader Nancy Pelosi:
"The United States is well served by a strong and stable Egypt, to the extent that that assistance is in further ends of that stability, we'll certainly be there. However, we want to be there in a way that is directly beneficial to the Egyptian people and that they are aware of our friendship."

Thousands of Egyptian activists and football fans marched from the headquarters of Al-Ahly club towards the General-Prosecutor office at the Supreme Courthouse headquarters downtown Cairo on Thursday, March 15, protesting the slow pace of procedures taken by the government to find those responsible for the recent football violence at the Egyptian city of Port-Said that killed at least 74 and injured several hundreds.
Protestors chanted statements against the Interior Ministry and the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) which they hold responsibility for bloody riots, raising posters of victims of "the massacre" that erupted following a football match between Cairo’s top club Al-Ahly and Port Siad's team Al-Masry.
Investigations are going on in the country’s worst football riots that took place on February 1st.
Egypt’s General- Prosecutor accused 75 people of murder charges in connection with the deadly soccer riots, including nine police officers.
Fans of Al-Ahly as well as other participants believe that Port-Said massacre was a conspiracy plotted by the police and the ruling military for political reasons.
