CABINET WATCH- Cabinet approves proposed changes to Anti-Terrorism Act: The Madbouly Cabinet approved yesterday proposed changes to the Anti-Terrorism Act that aim to cut off sources of funding to terrorists and confiscate their assets, according to a cabinet statement. The amendments state that the authorities must confiscate assets, properties, key documents, and any arms that belong to someone convicted of terrorism. They also mandate that landlords can face up to one year in prison and fines of up to EGP 10,000 for not informing and providing authorities with copies of their leases with any tenant. The statement did not state whether the amendments would require a vote from the House of Representatives.
