PM: Legalizing status of 80 churches, affiliated service buildings

The committee in charge of legalizing unlicensed churches approved on Monday 31/12/2018 the legalization of the status of 80 churches and church-affiliated service buildings, bringing the total number of regularized churches and their affiliated service buildings to 588 so far. 

This came at its meeting on Monday, under Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli, with the antiquities parliament affairs ministers and representatives of relevant bodies participating. 

In statements, cabinet spokesman Nader Saad said that the committee also reviewed the outcome of the process of legalizing the status of unlicensed churches across the country over the past period. 

In 2016, Egypt issued a long-anticipated law governing the building of churches in the country.
