Egypt court ruling on Morsi, SCAF

07-20-2012 02:36 BJT

The Egyptian Court ruled in three cases that decides the fate of the Army's power, the parliament and the constitutional committee's continuation.

Extreme security measures at Cairo's central court, as fear rises from public reaction on the court's verdicts. The court will decide in three cases each of them could change the balance of powers between Egypt's authorities. The first case was against the Army's constitutional declaration that it made to preserve some authorities for itself.

DR. Amr Fahmy, Lawyer, said, "The administrative court decided that it is not part of its authority to decide in that matter, which kills the attempts to cancel the constitutional declaration. It will now remain forever and no court now is allowed to investigate that matter anymore."

The second case was against president Morsi's decree to return the parliament. The administrative court decided to transfer the case to the constitutional court which earlier decided that Morsi's decree must be canceled and the parliament shall remain dissolved. Egypt's constitutional committee once again violated the law and kept the Islamic majority. In this case the sessions were delayed until July 30th after the Muslim Brotherhood lawyers asked to change the panel.

DR. Amr Fahmy, Lawyer, said, "In all attempts and after wasting this time, the court will not change the panel because all causes are not supported with evidence and in valid. The court would then rule to dissolve the constitutional committee like the previous time."

Few of the MB supporters stood outside the court furious with the judicial authority.

Ibrahim Al Kahlili,Muslim Brotherhood Supporter, said, "What does the judicial authority want? Why are they doing so.. We choose the parliament in free elections they want to cancel it? They cannot stand against the people's will. We demand the return of the parliament and the cancellation of the constitutional declaration。

Once again Egypt's destiny remains in justice hands. And it seems a race has started. As judges take their official holiday in august, there is a possibility that the Muslim brotherhood could delay july 30th session if this happens, they will be able to finish Egypt’s new constitution and a court decision to dissolve the constitutional committee will then be meaningless.
