Revolutionary Justice

This chapter focuses on the formal aspects of the establishment of the Revolution’s Court and its procedures. It argues that the manner in which the establishment of the court was announced, the choice of name and location for its operation, the design of the courtroom, and, most important, the decree determining the court’s authority and its procedure all point to the way in which the RCC perceived the special court and its objectives. The rhetoric that accompanied the stage on which the special court was set became even more pronounced in the court deliberations. This chapter analyzes the first two sessions in Ibrahim ‛Abd al-Hadi’s trial. It concludes that the procedural aspects of the establishment of the special courts directly corresponded to the positions of the parties with regard to the charges brought against the accused and the historical and political context in which he operated.

Keywords:   Revolution’s Court, rhetoric and politics, Ibrahim ‛Abd al-Hadi, political trials, Muhammad Naguib, treason, Sa‛dist party, Wafd party
