Egyptian authorities set
trial date for former leader


Hearing for former
Pres. Mohammed
Morsi set for Nov. 4
CAIRO (AP) - The politically
charged trial of Egypt's Moham-
med Morsi will begin Nov. 4,
almost four months to the day
after the country's first demo-
cratically elected president was
toppled by the military, authori-
ties said Wednesday.

The prosecution of Morsi on
charges of inciting his followers
to kill opponents of his rule takes
the crackdown on his Muslim
Brotherhood to a new level and
is likely to fuel protests by his
Islamist supporters, stoking the
turmoil shaking Egypt.
Since his July 3 ouster, Morsi's
backers have taken to the streets
in rallies met by a fierce response
by security forces that has left
hundreds dead.
Wednesday's announcement

comes as the United States
announced it was cutting hun-
dreds of millions of dollars in
annual aid to Egypt and its mili-
tary - a show of discontent with
the crackdown aimed at pres-
suring the interim leadership
to move quickly toward a demo-
cratically elected government.
For Egypt's military-backed
government, the trial is a chance
to lay out their justification
for the sweeping arrest cam-
paign and ultimately for Morsi's
ouster. Authorities contend the
former president and the Broth-
erhood, which dominated power
during his year in office, com-
mitted crimes while in power
- and have turned to violence
since his removal.
But the military, now Egypt's
dominant political power, also
opens itself up to criticism it is
carryingout show trials to crush
the Brotherhood, which accus-
es the army and its supporters
of wrecking Egypt's fledgling
Already there are questions
whether the trial, in which
Morsi and 14 other members of
his Brotherhood are defendants,
can be fair.
Morsi has been held in secret
military detention since his
ouster, with almost no contact
with the outside world beyond
two phone calls with his fam-
ily. During his interrogation, his
defense lawyers have not been
allowed to talk to him and say
they have not been shown any
documentation of the prosecu-
tion's case.
"This is a trial held under
the cannon of a tank," said
Mohammed Gharib, a member
of Morsi's legal team. "Is this an
atmosphere for a fair trial?"
Morsi's son, Osama Morsi,
told the Turkish news agency
Anadolu that his father "rejects
this trial and others and will not
recognize it."
Rights lawyers point out
that they tried to have the case
prosecuted while Morsi was in
office, a sign that it is not purely
based on vengeance.

has started gathering support online and already has nearly 15,000 signatures.
Saudi activistsh to debate
flfIng ban on women driving


Official request
for rights made to
conservative ruling
council last week
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP)S
- Saudi women on the ultra-
conservative kingdom's top
advisory council have called
for a discussion on the sensi-
tive issue of allowing women
to drive, a move that could
embolden reformers pushing to
lift the ban.
The official request was
made this week to the head
of the Shura Council, council
member Latifa al-Shaalan said,
to address all "excuses" raised
to keep women from driving
since Islamic law and Saudi
traffic laws do not forbid it.
Women seeking the right to
drive in Saudi Arabia have been
energized by a campaign call-
ing on them to drive on Oct. 26.
Saudi law does not explicitly
prohibit them from driving, but
religious edicts by senior and
influential clerics are enforced
by the police, effectively ban-

ning it. Authorities do not issue
driving licenses to women.
The campaign started as
an online petition last month
and has so far garnered nearly
15,000 signatures.
In 2011, a Saudi woman was
detained for posting an online
video of herself driving, though
her arrest launched wider pro-
The country is guided by
an ultraconservative interpre-
tation of Islam called Wah-
habism. Women cannot travel,
work, study abroad, marry, get
divorced or gain admittance to
a public hospital without per-
mission from a male guardian
- typically a husband, brother,
father or uncle.
Hard-line clerics have
opposed the driving campaign
and recently a prominent Saudi
cleric caused a stir when he said
medical studies show that driv-
ing has adverse effects on wom-
en's ovaries because it forces the
pelvis upward.
Al-Shaalan, the Shura Coun-
cil member, told journalists that
the recommendation for the
discussion on women driving is
not meant to coincide with the

campaign and that it has been
studied for a while.
"It is flawed that a woman
cannot drive a car after reach-
ing the position of deputy min-
ister, becoming a member of
the Shura Council, managing a
university and representing the
country on international bod-
ies," she said.
She said it is also counterin-
tuitive to force a woman to ride
in a car with a male driver who
may be a stranger because it
contradicts the kingdom's strict
rules on separation of the sexes.
While the Shura Council
does not have legislative pow-
ers, the 30 women council
members made history this
year when they became the first
females appointed to the body.
The move by King Abdullah to
give women a voice on the body
was seen as part of a larger
reform effort by the monarchy.
In 2011, King Abdullah said
women can vote and run as
candidates in the 2015 munici-
pal elections. Last year, the
kingdom began enforcing a law
that allows women to work in
female apparel and lingerie
