Big fight in the assembly because of the POWs

Unfortunately I missed watching this session of the Egyptian assembly on air yesterday , now I guess it was edited to remove all what happened in it .Yesterday Foreign minister “Ahmed El-Gait” attended the meeting with the assembly members to discuss the updates of the POWs case and to discuss his statement about it , yet it didn’t go easy at all , it turned in to some kind of war of the world between the foreign minister and the MPs to become a historical session as the for the first time a foreign minister in Egypt would face such attack in the assembly.

The MPs accused the minister of ignoring the case where as the minister defended his position explaining the difficulty of the case as we can’t go to the international criminal court because it doesn’t look in cases that took place before the year 2002 , fact that is mentioned in the law section

Since then the arguments began ,the minister also hinted to fact I didn’t know before that if we want a special criminal court like the court of the war crimes that happened in Yugoslavia needs a special order for the security council and of course this would be like a mission impossible as the minister hinted.

They are studying the case !!

According to this news in Arabic president Mubarak gave his order to the Foreign ministry to study “The exact meaning in Arabic” the POWs Case with its both legal and political parts

This was the statement of Foreign minister in front of the Foreign and Arabic affairs committees in the assembly yesterday

He also said very important statement I believe it should be highlighted

Having Peace with Israel doesn’t mean that we will give up our dignity or rights

This really good and promising but I hope it would go beyond the “study”
