Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, head of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) issued a decree on Monday suspending the implementation of sentences handed down against 90 civilians. 

Activists have been campaigning against the trying of civilians in military courts ever since the SCAF took over power after the ouster of Mubarak. Some 12,000 Egyptians are estimated to be currently detained by order of the military prosecution.
