Three Anti-Coup Lawyers Await Verdicts for Alleged Constitutional Court 'Insult'

Cairo Criminal Court set September 8, 2014 for a session in which it will issue the verdicts in the trial of Nasser Salem Al-Hafi and Abdel-Moneim Abdel-Maksoud (Muslim Brotherhood lawyers), as well as a third lawyer named Hassan Saleh, for allegedly insulting the Constitutional Court, which some judges demand should be abolished.

Abdel-Moneim Abdel-Maksoud was brought from Tora prison under tight security, while Nasser Al-Hafi and Hassan Saleh were absent for unknown reasons. Defense lawyers attending court were Mohamed Al-Damati and Dr. Mohamed Salim Al-Awa.

Justice Abdel-Meguid Mahmoud, former Public Prosecutor, had referred the lawyers Nasser Al-Hafi and Abdel-Moneim Abdel-Maksoud to Cairo Criminal Court for allegedly insulting the judges of the Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC) and accusing the SCC itself of rigging the decision to dissolve Parliament and sending it off for publication in the Official Gazette before hearing the case and pronouncing the verdict publicly.

Since the military coup grabbed power in Egypt, Muslim Brotherhood lawyers face a systematic campaign of arbitrary arrest that threw dozens of them in jail on trumped-up charges.
