The 12th Appeal Circuit of the Administrative Judiciary in Al Rehab, today Monday, April 8, 2024, decided to adjourn the consideration of the appeal against the ruling of the Supreme Administrative Court rejecting a lawsuit to cancel the decision to terminate the service of a civil servant, to May 20, to review the report of the State Commissioners Authority and the documents and memoranda submitted by the authority.

The lawyers of the Egyptian Center appealed the ruling because of the formation of the committee responsible for examining drug analysis samples from the Authority’s hospital, which contradicts the law that stipulates that the formation of committees should be confined to the Ministry of Health and the Addiction Treatment Fund.

It is worth mentioning that drug analysis for employees is considered a routine test to detect drug or alcohol, where the analysis is usually done on samples of urine, blood, hair, or saliva, knowing that blood drug analysis is considered the most accurate.

Law No. 73 of 2021 stipulates that one of the conditions for appointment or continuation in the job is proving the non-use of drugs through a surprise analysis by the competent authorities.

Moreover, the law stipulates penalties including imprisonment for anyone proven to have cheated in conducting the analysis or provided a result contrary to reality, while work is suspended for three months and half of the salary is deducted if drug use is confirmed, with a confirmatory analysis conducted.
