Article summary: 

Civilians do not stand trials by court-martial except in cases of emergency like those Egypt is going through at present, according to a member of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF).

"SCAF has received the administration of the country in critical circumstances in light of the absence of a government, parliament and the police and a state of lawlessness. SCAF, however, has been keen that no one would stand military trials except in cases of rape, hooliganism and intimidation of the people," said Maj. General Mamdūh Shāhīn during a press conference.

He noted that no one has stood military trials because of their opinions or ideologies, adding referral to this type of courts is solely up to the power of the president of the republic, currently replaced by SCAF.
