Egypt's Supreme Court Postpones Verdict Again!

Egypt's Supreme Administrative Court convened today to rule on the appeal described in this previous post and quoted below:
The first one will be on 15 December 2008 at Egypt's Supreme Administrative Court when a decision is expected regarding the appeal of a non-party (by an Islamist lawyer) to the 29 January 2008 ruling that allowed the Baha'is to obtain identification documents and birth certificates by inserting dashes "--" in place of religion in these documents. It is expected that the court will endorse the recommendation of its own State Judiciary Council to reject the appeal since the appellant, as stated by the council of judges, has no right to interfere with this lawsuit, and since the defendant (the Ministry of Interior) had not appealed the ruling and had accepted it on its face.

The court decided to postpone its verdict again until 19 January 2009.


  1. Perhaps it's time to inform Guinness, this may be a record.

  2. Webster just updated it's definition of a Kangaroo Court and is Using the Supreme Court of Egypt as the example of a Kangaroo Court...
