Sisi names Hamada Al-Sawi new attorney general after Sadek

CAIRO – 12 September 2019: President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has issued a decree naming Hamada al-Sawi as Egypt’s new attorney general, local media reported on Thursday. Sawi has succeeded General Prosecutor Nabil Sadek, whose term ends on September 19.

Sawi served in high-level judicial posts since 1986 and had been responsible for investigating numerous critical cases of public concern.

He served as head of the Justice Ministry’s National Center for Judicial Studies. He was also a member of the technical office of the Cairo Appeal Court. He was assigned as a judge to investigate corruption cases of state newspaper Al-Ahram’s advertising.

He served as the chief appellant in the Institute for Criminal Research and Training

In October 2015, outgoing Attorney General Nabil Sadek issued a decree appointing Sawi as Senior Attorney General of the Cairo Appeals Prosecution.

He took over the investigation in December 2016 into the bombing of the St. Peter church, where he was the Advocate General of the Cairo Court of Appeal. Almost 30 people were killed in the terrorist attack.

In August, Abu Bakr al-Seddiq Amer was sworn in as new head of the State Lawsuits Authority, in the presence of President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi.

Amer, who served as deputy head of the independent judicial authority, has succeeded legal expert Hussein Abdo Khalil who reached retirement age.

The State Lawsuits Authority is the oldest independent judicial body in Egypt, based on the protection of the rights and public money, according to its official website.

The authority is entrusted with the settlement of disputes, in which the State is a party, technical supervision of the legal affairs departments of the State administrative apparatus, and the preparation and drafting of State contracts.
