Head of parliament’s Human Rights Committee Alaa A’abed said on Thursday MP Mohamed Anwar Al Sadat faces other accusations “that would be announced later”.
On February 12، the parliament’s ethics committee decided to strip MP Mohamed Anwar Al-Sadat of his membership over violation of the parliamentary traditions.
A day later، Al Sadat filed a lawsuit against himself at the Attorney General’s office، calling for investigations into allegations of leaking the civil society organizations draft bill.
Al-Sadat faces accusations of passing a draft bill on civil society organizations to the embassy of the Netherlands.
Al-Sadat said the decision was not final. A parliamentary session will be held to decide on the issue.
On August 30، Al Sadat submitted resignation as head of the parliament’s human rights commission after the parliament speaker Ali Abdel A’al revealed he filed a lawsuit against the parliament in coordination with an international organization.
Al-Sadat said his resignation comes due to the parliament’s failure to meet requests made by the committee related to human rights in his country.
He also lamented the parliament's negative stances towards participation of the committee members in conferences abroad.
Al-Sadat، along with 11 MPs from the committee، was investigated earlier in Aug. by the Disciplinary Committee for allegedly travelling without permit to participate in a human rights conference in Geneva.
