Engineers to stage protest vigil

Engineers Against Sequestration activists have called for a protest vigil Thursday in front of the Irrigation Ministry’s Cairo headquarters, with the aim of warning Irrigation Minister Nassr Allam to refrain from challenging a recently issued court order abolishing 15 years of judicial sequestration of the Egyptian Engineers Syndicate.

In a statement Tuesday, the movement also declared it would call for salary and pension increases for the country’s engineers.

According to a recent court verdict, the sequestration of professional syndicates is in violation of the national constitution, since syndicates are considered "independent entities."
