Supreme Administrative Court

Arabic: المحكمة الإدارية العليا

Established 1955

Chairman: Magdi al-Agati

The Supreme Administrative Court (SAC) is the highest Egyptian administrative system of litigation. It is second to Egyptian Council of State, which is affiliated to Ministry of Justice. The inauguration of SAC was headed by Council of State al-Sayed Ali al-Sayed.

The SAC monitors lower administrative courts, reviews appeals of judgments of the Council of State, reviews appeals of the lower Administrative Judicial Court, and reviews appeals of nationalities, accommodation, investments, and capitals.

The SAC issued a judicial verdict on April 16, 2011 to dissolve the formerly ruling National Democratic Party and to freeze its assets until they can be returned to the possession of the Egyptian people. The decision came following Egypt’s January 25 Revolution and the resignation of former President Hosni Mubarak.

The court also decided that there is no judicial concern with the case of gas exportation to Israel.
