Treason law under consideration: Tantawi

Ahram Online, Wednesday 5 Oct 2011

The military council is currently investigating the possibility of reactivating the Nasser Era Treason Law to try members of the old regime, Field Marshall Hussein Tantawi confirmed today.

Tantawi made the announcement while opening a new ward in the Kobry El Koba Hospital in Cairo.

Since Mubarak was ousted from power last February, revolutionaries have been calling for the government to reintroduce the Treason Law to banish members of the old regime from re-entering Egypt’s political life.
