Article full text: 

The Cassation

court set the session of October 17 for examining the appeal lodged to stop

implementation of the seven

year imprisonment sentence Dr. Saad Eddin Ibrahim, the head of the Ibn Khaldoun Center,

was given in the

case against the center. In addition the session of December 19 was set for examining the appeal

lodged

against the ruling itself.


One of Ibrahim’s lawyers said that there was hope that the

court may accept the appeal lodged to stop the implementation of the ruling.


For her part,

lawyer

Randa Ibrahim, the daughter of Saad Eddin Ibrahim said, there is nothing to make us stop hoping.

According to the

legal reality there is no reason for continuing the imprisonment of my father, especially

after the cassation court

ruled military order No. 4/1992, under which my father and 27 of the Ibn Khaldoun

Center’s employees were tried

and convicted, unconstitutional.


Ibrahim’s defense team

denied that there was any American

pressure behind setting the session of October 17 for examining the

appeal.
