Cabinet refers legislation on anti-terror council to the House

LEGISLATION WATCH- Cabinet refers anti-terror council legislation to the House: The Ismail Cabinet referred yesterday draft legislation for the establishment of the Supreme Council to Combat Terrorism and Extremism to the House of Representatives. President Abdel Fattah El Sisi had ordered the formation of the council in April, following twin bombings targeting churches in Tanta and Alexandria. The council, which held its first meeting in August, will task every ministry and state institution with a role in the war on terror and will have the authority to issue binding decisions on counterterrorism measures. The council will also work to fast-track terror cases through the court system.
