Egypt's President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi yesterday ordered the transfer of a judge to a non-judicial post and allocated land to the army.

The decisions were published in the Official Gazette.

Al-Sisi allocated two areas of state-owned land to the Armed Forces. The lots, located in the southern provinces of Minya and Beni Suef, are to be utilised by the Armed Forces in land reclamation and farming activities, according to the official presidential decree.

In another decree, the Egyptian president ordered the transfer of Amir Salah El-Din from his role as a judge with the North Cairo Court of First Instance to a non-judicial position at the Ministry of Supply and Foreign Trade. Salah El-Din will retain the same job grade and salary in his new role, the decree said.
