Cabinet says emergency law to end mid-November

Post by DJKeefy »

Cabinet spokesperson Sherif Shawqi has claimed Egypt's emergency law will not continue past mid-November.

In remarks on Tuesday, Shawqi said the Cabinet does not intend to extend the emergency law in the wake of the Warraq church attack. Media speculation suggesting this is untrue, he claimed.

Egypt's Cabinet extended the law for three months following violence that broke out after the violent dispersals of sit-ins staged by supporters of deposed President Mohamed Morsy in Rabaa al-Adaweya and Giza's al-Nahda Square on 14 August.

The Administrative Court meanwhile postponed a lawsuit demanding a decision to extend the state of emergency for two months be stopped.

The court said a verdict will be issued in another session on 12 November.
