Egypt's Supreme Administrative Court's State Commissioners Authority on Thursday ordered that President Mohamed Morsi's son and daughter attend the hearing on a lawsuit demanding the revocation of their US citizenship.

This comes as part of a lawsuit filed in 2012 by Attorney Mohamed Salem —following Morsi's presidential election—to force his two children to renounce their US citizenship, which they acquired at birth in the 1980's when Morsi was a professor.

The state commissioners postponed the hearing until 30 May and issued a LE400 fine to the head of Egypt's Ministry of Foreign Affairs judicial department for delaying the document coordination process with the US State Department.

A similar case filed by lawyer Tarek Mahmoud in 2012 argued that their passport can be a means by which the US can conspire against Egypt.
