“The Supreme Administrative Court” postpones considering 31 government appeals against the ruling of the Souq Al-Bohi to June 18.

The Third Circuit of the Supreme Administrative Court decided today, Tuesday, February 27, 2024, to postpone the review of 31 appeals by government representatives against the ruling granting the right to 43 affected individuals occupying stalls in the Bohi vegetable and fruit market on Bohi Street in Imbaba neighborhood, Giza Governorate to establish alternative stalls for their removed stalls, to June 18.

Egyptian Center lawyers filed 43 lawsuits before the 11th Circuit of the Administrative Judiciary Court, acting as attorneys on behalf of 43 affected individuals occupying stalls in the vegetable and fruit market on Bohi Street, demanding the suspension of the implementation of the negative decision to refrain from implementing the right of usufruct contracts for commercial stores located in the commercial mall agreed to be established on a 500 m2 land owned by the Egyptian Railways Authority in Sharq Al-matar Street in the El-Moneera West Tunnel, Imbaba, and established by MOT Investment and Projects Company, to activate the protocol signed between Giza Governorate, the Informal Settlements Development Fund, MOT Company, and the National Tunnels Authority, with its implications, including: Giza Governorate, represented by Imbaba North District, allocating 43 stores to the owners of Buhe Market stalls (plaintiffs) who requested and accepted compensation in the form of an alternative store.

The court ruled, in a historic ruling on April 26, 2023, in the lawsuits filed by the Egyptian Center on behalf of the victims of Souq Al- Bohi to accept them in form, and in subject, to compel the Governor of Giza in his capacity to establish the commercial stores subject to the usufruct contracts dated 14/10/2018 according to what was agreed upon in the contract and the protocol signed on 4/10/2018, with its implications, most importantly the continued payment of an amount of 2000 pounds per month to each plaintiff, until the establishment of the stores, and obliging the administrative entity to bear the expenses.

The government – represented by the Governor of Giza and the Head of North Imbaba Neighborhood did not accept the aforementioned ruling and decided to appeal it before the Supreme Administrative Court, seeking its annulment, which the court decided to postpone to the session on June 18.
