Egypt’s parliament passes bill to make military officers immune from prosecution

Egypt’s parliament has passed a bill that could make senior military officers immune from future prosecution.

The bill – which was passed on Monday – grants President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi the right to name officers who are eligible for rewards that include ministerial benefits and immunity from investigation for any offences committed from July 3, 2013 until June 8, 2014, the period from Morsi’s overthrow to Sisi’s first day as president.
