Lawyers Subverting Rule of Law in Egypt


Lawyers, who are typically responsible for upholding the rule of law, are subverting it in Egypt.

The Assyrian International News Agency (AINA) provides the details in an article titled "300 Muslim Lawyers Storm Egyptian Court, Prevent Lawyers for Christian From Entering."

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Well technically upholding the rule of law isn't a lawyer's job, though they are certainly involved in the process. This is the responsibility of the Department of Justice (or equivalent) and related law enforcement agencies. Indeed, a cynic might say that subverting the rule of law is a lawyer's job.
