Egypt: The police state - Bikya Masr - 1 views

  • The search policy is by no means new; students were subjected to this sort of thing routinely in previous years. Students have become accustomed to it and open their bags well before they reach the responsible official. Such searches are unconstitutional, but that doesn’t stop them from doing it.

This order shall be given by the competent judge or the Public Prosecution in accordance with the provisions of the law.”
