Egypt's top court on indefinite strike

Publication time: 2 December 2012, 16:01

Egypt's Supreme Constitutional Court has shelved its work indefinitely after protests by President Mohamed Morsi's supporters outside its headquarters prevented judges from meeting.

The judges announced the suspension of the court sessions until the time when they can continue their message and rulings in cases without any psychological and material pressures. The top court had earlier announced it had postponed its ruling on the legitimacy of the constituent assembly, citing "administrative'' reasons. It is not known whether a new date has been set for the ruling.

Any ruling from the court would be a direct challenge to Morsi - who last month gave himself near absolute powers, placing himself and the assembly above any oversight, including by the judiciary - and could further undermine the charter's legitimacy.

Meanwhile, anti-Morsi protesters continued to occupy Cairo's Tahrir Square on Sunday morning, a day after the president called for a December 15 public referendum on a draft constitution after receiving a copy of the document.
