Morris Sadek files lawsuit against Egyptian government to regain nationality
Published in Bikya Masr on 25 - 02 - 2012

CAIRO: Prominent controversial Coptic Activist, Morris Sadek, Head of the Coptic American Association, filed another lawsuit against the Egyptian government, before the International Court of Justice in Hague, demanding the revocation of a court ruling that led to the withdrawal of his Egyptian citizenship, the case no.1232 for the year 2012. He demanded the immediate reversal of a court ruling by the Egyptian Administrative Court.
A statement by Sadek on Thursday said that his lawsuit prosecutes the Egyptian judiciary, which stripped him of his Egyptian nationality, claiming the government punished him for being a Coptic activist who defends persecuted Christians in Egypt.
He added that the reason for the loss of his citizenship is the court ruling that resorted to applying Islamic Sharia Law, which is a hisba case. He said that this kind of lawsuit is often used to issue oppressive verdicts against Christians, by applying Sharia on non-Muslims, arguing that some “extremists” have set up a lawsuit against him before the Administrative Court. And judgment was rendered against him on May 22 last year, leading to the revocation of his Egyptian Nationality.
He said that the court ruling was issued against him, due to his practicing of freedom of expression in the defense of persecuted Christians in Egypt, whose churches and houses have been subjected to torching, and daughters were abducted, saying that he was penalized for calling for an international protection of Egypt, adding that it is a legitimate right in the light of the suffering of the Copts in Egypt.
It is the second time for Sadek to file a lawsuit against the Egyptian Government, after he filed the first one last October, however, no announcement of the results of the investigations have been made yet.
