Statement by the EU Presidency on extension of the emergency law in Egypt

The Presidency of the EU regrets that on 26 May 2008 the Egyptian Parliament voted the extension of the state of emergency, in force for several decades, until 31 May 2010. It looks forward to its (early) lifting, while at the same time expecting the adoption of counter terrorism legislation in line with international standards as soon as possible.
