Madinaty case ruling set for Sept 14
Cairo, August 10, 2010
Egypt's High Administrative Court delayed a ruling on the appeal of Talaat Moustafa Group's (TMG) Madinaty land deal case until Sept. 14, the presiding judge said on Tuesday.
A lower court ruled in June that the New Urban Communities Authority (NUCA), a body under the ministry, broke the law when it sold the land directly to a TMG unit instead of opening it up to bidding, and the contract should be scrapped.
NUCA and TMG appealed the first ruling separately and the court said on August 1 that it would merge the two appeals together. - Reuters
