Egyptian prosecutor-general dismissal case referred to new court

Egyptian prosecutor-general dismissal case referred to new court | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Egypt's Administrative Court ruled on Tuesday that the case brought to it against President Morsi's dismissal of Mubarak-era prosecutor-general Abdel-Meguid Mahmoud is outside its jurisdiction.

 

The court has referred the case to Cairo's Court of Cassation, which it says has jurisdiction over appeals against cases associated with members of the judiciary.

The case seeks to revoke Morsi's decision on the grounds that the removal was unconstitutional, unlawful and bypassed the judiciary. It also demands the removal of the current Morsi-appointed prosecutor-general, Talaat Abdullah.

Under the Egyptian legal system, the prosecutor-general is dismissed by judicial decree, not by the president.

After dismissal, former prosecutor general appointed adviser in Kuwait

After dismissal, former prosecutor general appointed adviser in Kuwait | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Former Prosecutor General Abdel Meguid Mahmoud will leave to Kuwait within days, after he was appointed as a legal adviser to the Kuwaiti parliament, state newspaper Al-Ahram Massai reported.

Mahmoud will bring a legal team from Egypt that consists of four Egyptian judges as his advisers in Kuwait, according to the paper.

The four judges, including his former secretary, worked with him in the prosecutor generals office before President Mohamed Morsy dismissed him.

Kuwaiti National Assembly Speaker Ali al-Rashid told Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Wasat that Mahmoud would be appointed as a legal adviser to the assembly, but gave no further details.

Morsy had issued a constitutional declaration on 22 November in which he removed Mahmoud from office and replaced him, sparking protests from opposition groups and widespread criticism from judges and prosecutors, who saw the declaration as interference with the judiciarys independence.

After his removal, Mahmoud returned to work in the judiciary, taking over the presidency of an appeals court.

Egypt's court to sort out tug-of-war over prosecutor-general

Egypt's court to sort out tug-of-war over prosecutor-general | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Egypt's Administrative Court is due to rule on Tuesday on a case against President Mohamed Morsi's dismissal of Mubarak-era prosecutor-general Abdel-Meguid Mahmoud last November.

 

The case seeks to revoke Morsi's decision on the argument that the removal was unconstitutional, unlawful and had bypassed the judiciary. They also demand the removal of the Morsi-appointed successor, Talaat Abdullah.

Under the Egyptian legal system, it is by judicial decree that the prosecutor-general can be dismissed – the president is not given that authority to do so.

President Morsi, however, dismissed the prosecutor-general within the context of a legislative void, via a highly controversial constitutional declaration.

 

After Egypt's People's Assembly (lower house of parliament) was ruled unconstitutional and disbanded, President Morsi issued a constitutional declaration in November 2012. He used the controversial decree to make several strong political moves, including dismissing the country's prosecutor-general and replacing him with Talaat Abdullah.
