Administrative Court Hears MB Appeal Against Military Trials On Tuesday
Egypt’s Administrative Court will hear the appeal lodged by 33 MB leaders and 100 of their wives and children to settle the lawsuit they filed to the Constitutional Court to suspend the president’s decision of referring them to the military tribunals.
The Administrative Court will hear, next Tuesday April, 3, 2007, the appeal lodged by 33 Muslim Brotherhood (MB) leaders and about 100 of their wives and underage children to settle the lawsuit they filed to the Constitutional Court to suspend the president’s decision of referring them to the military tribunals.
Eng. Khairat Al Shater, the second deputy chairman of the Muslim Brotherhood, and a number of MB leaders who were referred to the military tribunals, filed an appeal in front of the Administrative Court, in the State Council, against the ruling of the chief justice of the Supreme Constitutional Court of refusing to set a session to hear the conflict request, demanding to oblige him to define an urgent session to hear the request .
In a related context, Cairo Criminal Court (second district), headed by counselor Gamil Ahmed Nada, issued a ruling on Thursday March, 29, 2007, of releasing 8 MB detained leaders, including 5 referred to a military court and canceling the Interior Minister’s arrest warrant; the five are:
-Eng. Khairat Al Shater, the second deputy chairman of the MB
-Eng. Ayman Abdul Ghani
-Accountant Mostafa Salem
-Accountant Mohamed Mehanna
-Yasser Abdou, the Secretary general of the Syndicate of Commercial Professions in Giza .
For his part, lawyer Mostafa Al Demeiri confirmed to Ikhwanweb that the acquittal was issued according to the emergency law and the Interior Minister has the right to challenges it within 15 days; then, a session shall be fixed to hear the minister’s appeal within ten days after lodging the appeal; after this, the release decision should be applied, which is unexpected to happen under a regime that doesn’t respect court rulings.
The military prosecution issued last Thursday also a decision of prolonging the jail of 10 MB leaders for 15 days pending the military case that includes 40 MB leaders.
The ten MB leaders whose jail was prolonged are:
Dr. Mohamed Ali Beshr, a professor at Monofiya university
Dr. Essam Hashish, a professor at Cairo Faculty of Engineering
Dr. Khaled Awda, a professor at Asyut University
Eng. Medhat Al-Haddad, a businessman,
Eng. Osama Abdul Mohsen Sharby, businessman
Eng. Said Saad Ali, from Kafr Al-Sheikh
Dr. Diya’ Al-Din Farahat, a businessman
Dr. Abd Al-Rahman Saudi, a businessman
Mahmoud Abdul Gawaad, a businessman.
