Article summary: 

Concerns have arisen among human rights and civil society organizations after the attack on journalism and the media.  Activists believe the attack on the media will be followed by an attack on civil society organizations.

Ihāb Rādī, activist, said that the Rural Development Association (RDA) submitted a proposal to the Ministry of Social Solidarity to receive funds for a project about public participation in Constitution drafting. The Ministry did not respond which, by law, freezes the funds. Consequently, the Chairman of the Association filed a lawsuit against the Minister of Social Solidarity and it will be considered by the court in September 2012.
