The Administrative Judicial Court will issue its verdict on 16 April on the annullment of the Toshka land contract signed by Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal.
The contract relates to 100,000 acres of land in the southern Egyptian Toshka region, which the prince purchased from the Egyptian government in 1997 as a business venture.
Lawyer Shehata Mohamed Shehata filed a lawsuit against the prince, saying that the land was given to him by direct order, violating the law on state-owned land. The law stipulates that the sale of such land must be by public auction.
The Egyptian State Commissioners Authority also said the contract was in violation of the rules of state land sales.
