Just a repeat of the same discussion of a *draft* law (flipping language control 
to English, etc. goes back to the /home/ page, but translation works)

Access blocked from outside Egypt, but translation works, and another repeat of 
the same discussion of a *draft* law!

> vacation that’s coming after Ramadan month (public holiday is planned on 21-22

> 28^th April Dawn)

Ideally what is desired is a link to an official regulation, decree, or law, 
officially passed and published, or a quote from it, with all the details 
including dates and/or times passed and/or in effect, accessible on the web 
outside Egypt, and/or a copy of the complete text, in a form which may be 
auto-translated to English for posting, e.g.


which is pretty ideal, as it quotes the decree and publication date, thre 
previous legislation, and the date and time of the change and return to normal.
