Cairo Administrative Court ordered drafting a legal opinion for a lawsuit against Kamal al-Helbawi who called for reconciliation with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Members of the council agreed that Helbawi only spoke for himself when he called for the initiative.
Samir Sabry filed a lawsuit on Wednesday to Attorney General Nabil Sadek to include former MB spokesperson Kamal Al-Helbawi on the list of terrorist entities.
Helbawi made a TV appearance on the Turkish-based MB-affiliated television channel Mekameleen on Friday as he called for the initiative.
The initiative stirred anger among Egypt’s political society as some politicians demanded an immediate trial for Helbawi.
