Abdeen Criminal Court in Cairo ruled on Monday to postpone until 28 December court hearings in the case against the Tamarod political movement.
The case was filed by lawyer Ashraf Farahat, calling for the Tamarod movement to be banned, and their finances and headquarters confiscated.
The lawyer representing Mahmoud Badr, a founder of Tamarod, appeared at Monday’s court session to present documents showing his official request to the Parties Affairs Committee for the creation of a political party named Tamarod.
Farahat claims that the movement lacks any legal status, and that the original request to the Parties Affairs Committee was refused.
Tamarod is a popular political movement founded in opposition to former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, that called for early presidential elections.
Tamarod aimed to collect 15m signatures demanding Morsi’s removal as president before 30 June 2013, the one-year anniversary of his inauguration.
