CAIRO: Egypt’s Administrative Court adjourned Sunday a lawsuit against decision of Giza governor over dissolving 6th of April Movement to Feb 21, Youm7 reported.

The court referred the case to the High Constitutional Court to consider the articles concerning the civil society dissolution.

The Movement’s founder, Ahmed Maher, has sued the Ministry of Social Solidarity and the Giza governor over their March decision to dissolve the movement per a previous ruling issued by a Court of Urgent Matters.

Maher’s lawsuit is based on two constitutional articles stipulate that the Ministry of Social Solidarity is the only body authorized to dissolve civil society’s organizations. During Sunday’s hearing, the court demanded Maher file the case to the High Constitutional Court to consider the articles.

In April 2014, the Cairo Court of Urgent Matters ordered the banning of the activities of April 6 Youth Movement over espionage claims.
