Understanding Criminal Law:

Criminal law in Egypt encompasses a wide range of offenses, from minor infractions to serious crimes, and is designed to protect society from harm, maintain order, and uphold justice. Whether you’re facing criminal charges or seeking legal advice, understanding the fundamentals of criminal law is essential to navigate legal proceedings effectively.

Key Principles and Sources of Criminal Law:

  1. Egyptian Penal Code (Law No. 58 of 1937): The Egyptian Penal Code serves as the primary legislation governing criminal offenses and their penalties. It outlines various crimes, including theft, assault, fraud, and homicide, and prescribes punishments for those found guilty. The Penal Code also contains provisions related to criminal procedure, evidence, and defenses available to accused individuals.
  2. Criminal Procedure Law: Procedural aspects of criminal law, including arrest, detention, trial procedures, and appeals, are governed by Egyptian Criminal Procedure Law (Law No. 150 of 1950). This legislation establishes the legal framework for investigating and prosecuting criminal cases, ensuring due process and protecting the rights of defendants.
  3. Specialized Criminal Laws: In addition to the Penal Code and Criminal Procedure Law, Egypt has enacted specialized legislation to address specific types of criminal activities, such as drug trafficking, terrorism, cybercrime, and corruption. These laws contain provisions tailored to combatting particular offenses and impose harsh penalties on offenders.

"Wir haben 2016/17 von einem nicht seriösen Anwalt zwei Wohnungen gekauft gehabt, wir sind dann über die Deutsche Botschaft zu Mr. Michael gestoßen und er hat uns sehr geholfen. Wir sind aktuell dran das Problem mit dem vorherigen Anwalt und Herrn Nader zu klären. Wir werden jede Entscheidung nun mit Herrn Michael Nader vorher klären und dann eine Wahl treffen. Also ich kann ihm sehr empfehlen. Sehr vertrauenswürdig und hilfsbereit.
