  Mohammed Tosson (Former Member of the Bar Association and Media Spokesman of MB Lawyers) has welcomed the statement of the Minister of Justice in the Parliament yesterday, February 24th, in which he announced fees reduction from ten times the real value to five times.


  Meanwhile, he saw that this step is insufficient as it did not include all articles in the presented law, and he considered articles number 5 and 9 as the most dangerous articles to which the minister didn’t point at.


  He explained that the decision of escalation taken by lawyers is bound by the will of the lawyers and the discussions with the Egyptian national forces to preserve the right to litigation.


  This governmental retraction comes at a time in which lawyers protests culminated on Tuesday’s strike, where the majority of Egypt’s lawyers went on a strike in all courts and unions protesting against the law of increasing judicial fees which was described by lawyers as "sceptical", threatening of more escalation if the government insisted on presenting this bill before the Parliament and they demanded it would be excluded form Parliament’s agenda.
