The Cairo Court of Appeals commissioned Wednesday Judge Khalil Omar Abdel Aziz to investigate allegations of illegal foreign funding to religion oriented civil society organizations in Egypt.
Investigations had already been initiated by judges Sameh Abu Zeid and Ashraf Ashmawy. Both apologized for not concluding these investigations.
These investigations involve any CSO of a religious nature and seek to verify that funding practices are in compliance with the law.
