Admin Court postpones Sadat lawsuit

Roqia Sadat opposes the appointment of Osama Rushdie to the National Council for Human Rights

The Administrative Judiciary Court postponed the case filed by Roqia Sadat, daughter of the late President Anwar Sadat, against the head of the Shura Council, Ahmed Fahmy, and President of the National Council for Human Rights (NCHR) Hossam El-Gheriany. The case was postponed until the first of September, according to state-owned news agency Ahram.

Sadat filed a lawsuit demanding NCHR and the Shura Council revoke their decision to grant Osama Rushdie, former leader of Al-Jamaa Al-Islamiya, membership of the NCHR.

Sadat justified her claim by saying Rushdie was one of the accused involved in the assassination of the late president and therefore is unqualified to work for the NCHR, whose principle task is to ensure respect for basic human rights, upholding international conventions, and defending citizens from any violation of their rights.
