Egypt’s House approves amendments for tougher to anti-terror legislation

LEGISLATION WATCH- House approves amendments for tougher anti-terror legislation: The House of Representatives greenlit in a plenary session yesterday proposed amendments to the Anti-Terrorism Act, and referred them to Maglis El Dawla (State Council) for a final legal review, Masrawy reports. The changes received committee-level approval a day earlier. They aim to expand the definition of terrorist financing, and come at a time when Egypt’s legal framework against money laundering and funding terrorism is subject to a review by the the Middle East and North Africa Financial Action Task Force. The AP and Asharq Al Awsat both took note of the law’s passing.
