Today the judge has renewed Alfakharany's detention for another 15 days.

Last Thursday Alfakharany also appeared in court regarding the case of insulting the judiciary alongside Morsi and others. The case was adjourned till 14th Nov.

No.. The SCC could still declare it unconstitutional. The SCC has the highest authority when it comes to laws. The only way to get around it was what Morsi did when he immunized his decrees against the power of the SCC, which consequently lead to what we all know... That is why no president would think of repeating that act again...

No, nothing at all.

Egypt has approved a few months ago a new mining law and its executive regulations. This was done while the current PM was the minister of petroleum & mineral resources, so obviously he was involved in all the discussions.

The general impression & feedback from people in the industry are very negative about the law, but with it being approved only a few month ago I think it would be very difficult to be changed soon as it took them years to get this new one approved.

Egypt is offering some tenders very soon for mining Quartz, Lead, Zinc & Iron Oxide in the Eastern Desert. If no body applied or investors gave a feedback that they were not investing because of the new mining law, then that could apply pressure on the government to rethink about the new mining law. While if investors applied and the tenders were successful, then Egypt may not find a reason to change the law.

I read many comments before from people at CEY that they are not happy about the new mining law and that they would only enter in new projects only if Egypt gets the mining law right as the current one is not.

Law 32 is not an optional card for the defendant to choose whether to use or not. The law states that it is the court that applies law 32 if it applies on a certain case.

As CEY case was filed by a 3rd party, so law 32 applies in this case, but all courts do not want to apply law 32 until the SCC confirms its constitutionality.

So if the SCC approves law 32 with its retroactive part, then CEY "should" be thrown out.

On the other hand, if the SCC finds law 32 or the retroactive part of it unconstitutional, then the SAC will continue with the case and the merits of the appeal.

I'm not quiet sure actually what happens now during the hearings. Does the court adjourn straight away pending law 32 clarification, or does it listen to both sides and get on with the merits of the appeal while law 32 gets verified? All the published reports just said (Adjourned until 27th Oct... with no reason for the adjournments). Obviously if the court is getting on with the appeal then that would save a lot of time later if law 32 was found to be unconstitutional.
