Egypt: Constitutional Court Denies Rumors of 'Ousting' President

The Supreme Constitutional Court dismissed reports that its counselors are currently meeting to look into procedures to oust President Mohamed Morsi.

Such reports are baseless and aim to drag the court into political battles, said court Spokesman Counselor Maher Sami in statements.

He pointed out that the court does not have the competence to look into such procedures, let alone that all the court sessions have been suspended due to the protests outside the court that hindered judges from assuming their work.
