Protesting Morsi: Egypt’s Constitutional Court Closes

By Ria Novosti
Global Research, December 04, 2012

Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court has halted its work “indefinitely” after protesters prevented justices from getting to their offices on Sunday morning.

The court building is being blockaded by protesters who support President Mohamed Morsi and his November 22 “Constitutional Declaration.”

The justices “were not able to get into the court building and do their job because of the massed people blocking the way and shouting threats (against them),” the court said in a statement announced on Egyptian television.

The halt indefinitely postpones a court decision on whether to dissolve both the commission that drafted the new Constitution and the Shura Council, the upper house of parliament.

May the Egyptian people transition safely to a better way of governance.

Thanks for the heads-up, Catherina! Very, very great to read you!
