El Sisi appointed on Thursday new heads to three judicial bodies

President Abdel Fattah El Sisi appointed on Thursday new heads to three judicial bodies, marking the first appointments by presidential decree after the controversial amendments to the Judicial Authorities Act were passed in April, Al Masry Al Youm reports. The swearing-in ceremony for Magdy Aboulela as President of the Court of Cassation (the nation’s highest appeals court), Rashida Fathallah as Chairman of the Administrative Prosecution Authority, and Hussein Abdo Hamza as Chairman of the State Lawsuits Authority took place yesterday. Under the amendments, El Sisi also has the power to appoint the head of the Council of State, but the current council head has yet to complete his term.
