Egypt court adjourns Abu-Ismail ‎case

Ahram Online, Tuesday 10 Apr 2012

Case filed to prove nationality of presidential hopeful's mother adjourned until Wednesday

Egypt's State Council has adjourned until Wednesday the case filed by Hazem Salah Abu-Ismail, wherein the presidential hopeful is demanding that the Ministry of Interior turnover official proof that his mother is a dual national.

The Egyptian interior and foreign ministries and the US State Department have said that his mother acquired a US passport before she died, but Abu-Ismail wants official evidence. If the allegation is proven he would be excluded from the presidential race set for later this spring.

Thousands of Abu-Ismail supporters have been demonstrating in Tahrir Square and in front of the State Council in solidarity with their favoured presidential candidate.
