CAIRO, July 30 (MENA) - The Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC) has adjourned until October 14 a session to probe two contradictory rulings about a maritime demarcation agreement between Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
The SCC delayed the session Sunday to receive relevant documents.
In June, the SCC decided to temporarily suspend the two contradictory rulings issued by the Administrative Court and the Court of Urgent Matters.
The Administrative Court had annulled the agreement that entailed a transfer of sovereignty over the islands of Tiran and Sanafir from Egypt to Saudi Arabia.
The Court of Urgent Matters later overruled the verdict of the Administrative Court.
The SCC should reach a settlement to the conflicting judicial rulings.
In April 2016, Egypt and Saudi Arabia signed the agreement on maritime border demarcation, marking the islands of Tiran and Sanafir within Saudi regional waters.
