Parliamentary speaker publishes book on terrorism and criminal law

Parliamentary speaker and professor of criminal law Fathi Sorour, at a press conference at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, will on Tuesday launch the publication of his new book, “A Legal Confrontation with Terrorism,” published in English and French.

“We will show a documentary film about Sorour’s academic expertise after the conference,” said Bibliotheca Alexandrina media director Khaled Azab. “Then Sorour will talk about the reasons for writing his new book.”

In the book, Sorour explains the difference between terrorism as a criminal phenomenon and as a phenomenon that is subject to the rule of law. He also addresses the relation between Egyptian and international criminal law, asserting that terrorism falls under the jurisdiction of both, since terrorism harms the right to live and aims to intimidate people.

Sorour has said previously that Egypt was one of the first countries to call for an international conference under the auspices of the United Nations to define terrorism and unify its definition in one international accord, as called for by President Hosni Mubarak in Strasburg in 1986.
