In Pictures: State Council adjourns the case on constituent assembly
The Administrative Judiciary Court adjourned the case calling for the assembly’s dissolution to 23 October and reserved the session for a verdict.
A Muslim Brotherhood affiliated lawyer had to be escorted out of the courthouse by police after he went on a 10 minute outburst and insulted the judge, calling him biased and a traitor and asking him to step down from the case.
Around a dozen protesters demonstrated on the steps of the State Council building outside the court, demanding the dissolution of the Constituent Assembly and chanting against the Muslim Brotherhood.
“Egypt is a civil state, Muslim Brothers and Salafis. We reject terrorism in the name of religion and the forced migration of Christians,” they chanted.
They also said the Constituent Assembly was “a sham” and that they demanded a representative constitution.
