This chapter presents the criminal-procedure law of Egypt according to the sources of that law: the 1971 Constitution, the 1950 Code of Criminal Procedure, the 1958 Emergency Law, and other legislation; decisions by the Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC), the Court of Cassation, and other organs of the Egyptian judiciary; and administrative and executive regulations. Included are references to controversial aspects of this law and its practice, such as the use of military courts, state security courts, and emergency courts and powers. The chapter thus serves as an introduction to modern Egyptian criminal procedure and a reference source for scholars and researchers.
