Ownership banned in Suez Canal region project

A senior Egyptian official has said that a legal framework banning all property ownership in the Suez Canal region would be presented to the government with days.

Walid Abdel Ghaffar, an adviser to the transportation minister told Al-Masry Al-Youm that the new draft law, prepared by legal experts, bans all investors from land ownership, Egyptian and foreign, as the region will be under a usufruct system only.
Abdel Ghaffar also said that no property within the project area will be sold and that all land there will continue to be state property.

Investors will be able to rent land under the usufruct system, and all offers will be studied within the law, except those that infringe on national security.
He added that investors would be dealt with through a "one-window" system to avoid bureaucracy, and that the state would also establish a special body to manage the region's projects.

EMERGENCY Sinai Bedouin plea for HELP!!!


Sinai Weekly

Community Foundation for South Sinai:

I have had to cancel my trip to Sinai as there has been catastrophic flooding in the last 48 hours. I'm told at least 40 people have lost their lives. Wadi Feiran has been practically washed away by a 3m wall of water travelling at 200Km per hour. 
The road is completely blocked and impassable in both directions. The St Katherine area is thus effectively cut off; wells ruined, electric cables washed away, no gas cylinders left, all firewood wet, and it's been raining and/or snowing all day and is now -3. Many people have lost their homes. They need blankets, bedding and food. 
We're approaching everyone who has given to us in the past in Egypt, to try to secure some immediate relief (Mohammed and Faraj can move small-scale supplies, even though it took Mohammed six hours to cross Wadi Feiran yesterday). 
From here the best we can do right now is pray for everyone who is suffering in the cold. With Egypt racked by tension and the eyes of the international community on Syria, Mali etc, the plight of our Bedouin friends is unlikely to attract much attention - so if you care about Sinai and the Bedu, please help.
 please contact Mohamed Gouda on 01224888018 he is organizing to send supplies
