The administrative court postponed until 19 June a lawsuit filed by lawyer and activist, Hamed ‎Sedik, to petition the minister of interior and the cabinet to strip Gamal Mubarak and ‎Mohamed ElBaradei of Egyptian nationality. ‎
Sedik argues that Gamal, the younger son and erstwhile heir apparent of ousted president Hosni Mubarak, should not be allowed to keep his ‎Egyptian nationality because he was granted British citizenship without permission from ‎Egyptian authorities.‎

Likewise, he says, presidential hopeful, ElBaradei, should be dealt the same verdict for acquiring the Swedish nationality, even though the former head of the International Atomic ‎Energy Agency had denied having citizenship from any other country except Egypt.

Today’s session was postponed because Sedik was not in attendance.‎
