Penalizing Discriminatory Actions

10/15/2011

The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, acting as Egypt's current legislator, issued an amendment to the Penal Code by adding a new article to penalize any action or inaction that leads to discrimination against individuals or a group of people because of sex, origin, language or religion, or beliefs, resulting in breach of the principles of equal opportunities, or social justice or public peace. The punishment is imprisonment or EGP 30,000 in fine or either penalty. If the crime is committed by a public employee, the penalty is imprisonment with not less than three months and a fine of EGP not less than 50,000 and not more than 100,000, or either penalty.
