Parliament Passes Amendments Regulating Military Courts

The Egyptian Parliament has approved proposed amendments to Military Judiciary Law 25/1966, focusing on regulating the structure and operations of military courts.

The amended law primarily addresses the composition and functions of military courts handling appellate crimes, along with the operational framework of the Supreme Military Court for Appeals and the Military Court for Appellate Misdemeanors.

These amendments also establish the Supreme Military Judiciary Council, which is set to enhance coherence and integration within the country's criminal legislation. They detail operational guidelines, powers, authorities of judicial bodies, and the immunity of their members.

The proposed law includes five articles, such as the addition of a jurisdictional level: the Military Court for Appellate Crimes. The military court levels now include the Supreme Military Court for Appeals, the Military Court for Appellate Crimes, the Military Court for Crimes, the Military Court for Appellate Misdemeanors, and the Military Court for Misdemeanors, with clearly defined jurisdictional scopes.

The President of the Military Judiciary Council will be authorised to organise the chambers of the Supreme Military Court for Appeals, while the Director of Military Courts has similar authority for other military courts.
