Egypt's Baha'is: Supreme Court Delays Decision

Egypt's Supreme Administrative Court convened today, 19 June 2006, to hear the Government's appeal of the lower court's ruling that has granted the Baha'is their rights to enter their religion on government issued ID cards and all other official documents. The lower court's ruling was seen to imply the recognition of the Baha'i Faith in Egypt. Five Islamist attorneys urged the Supreme Court today for a quick judgment against the Baha'is. The Government's attorneys, however, have not made their demands known to the court in its highly anticipated session today.

The Supreme Court has, therefore, adjourned without making any decisions regarding the Government's appeal, until it reconvenes again on 16 September 2006.
