By-Almasry Alyoum | 18 July 2012
The court reviewing the Constituent Assembly case suspended the trial session for a second time and decided to hold it in another hall due to crowds and shouting.
Dozens of Muslim Brotherhood members also rallied before the State Council, demonstrating against the lawyers who filed the lawsuit and calling on the court not to dissolve the Constituent Assembly. They also demanded the purging of the judiciary and the cancellation of the supplement to the Constitutional Declaration.
Clashes also erupted between Muslim Brotherhood members and Free Egyptians Party members, with the latter rejecting pressure on the judiciary and calling on the Administrative Court to rule according to the law. Bystanders intervened to end the clashes.
Several Muslim Brotherhood lawyers submitted requests demanding the recusal of the Administrative Court panel presided over by Abdel Salam al-Naggar.
