Top Judicial Body Should Ensure Women’s Full Participation in the Judiciary
(Beirut) - The Egyptian government should act to end discrimination against women in judicial positions in all courts, Human Rights Watch said today. The Supreme Judicial Council on February 22, 2010, overruled a vote taken on February 15 by an administrative court, known as the Council of State, to bar women from its judicial positions.
23 of February is a National Day for Street Children
Al Shehab Foundation for Comprehensive Development is taking the role general coordinator for organizing the celebration of street children’s day in collaboration with other 90 Egyptian civil society organizations that are interested in children’s issues, as well as, a group of individuals and artists. The celebration of street children’s day is taking place for the forth year in row under slogan “Street Children is a Society’s Responsibility” in the Cultural Garden for Child (AL Sayida Zeinab , Kadrey Street) from 11:00 A.M to 6:00 P.M.
I. Civil and political rights
A. Constitutional reform
Egypt needs a new constitution, or at least a fundamental reform of the 1971 constitution, which
constitutes the primary source of the chronic institutional and structural illnesses that plague human
rights observance in Egypt, largely because it gives the executive authority absolute power over the
legislature and judiciary and grants the president of the republic unlimited authority subject to no
oversight or external review.
Freedom House condemns the arrest of 19 activists in Egypt - among them leading bloggers, political party representatives, and journalists - and demands their immediate release without harm.
