Egypt’s anti-terrorism law is issued

On 15 August 2015, President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi issued a decree ratifying law number 94 for the year 2015: The anti-terrorism law. This law allows the public prosecutor (or the investigations authority), if dealing with a terrorist crime, to order (in a reasoned decree) censoring and recording communications and calls, recording and videotaping private meetings and what goes on the internet, confiscating letters, printed materials, parcels, and telegrams in all their forms. The prosecution also has the right to block websites that publish misleading material that aim at deceiving justice.
