Official in Egypt files lawsuit to annul Renaissance Dam Agreement

The Egyptian Assistant Foreign Minister, Ambassador Ibrahim Yusri, has filed two lawsuits before the State Council to annul agreements which he said are in violation of the Egyptian constitution and harm the country’s interests.

The first lawsuit demands the Renaissance Dam Agreement which Egypt has signed with Ethiopia and Sudan be annulled.

According to the lawsuit, the agreement is “unfair” for Egypt, and harms Egypt’s interests in the Nile waters and will have serious implications on the country.

The lawsuit attributes the weakness of the agreement to the weakness of the legal and professional advisors team in the presidency.

Yusri has also filed a lawsuit demanding the Egyptian-Cypriot agreement be cancelled as it waives Egypt’s territorial borders and sovereign rights.
