Authors : Gameel Muhammad .

Abstract

Abstract The study aimed at investigating and comparing the conception, regulations and punitive procedures of peaceful demonstrations laid by Egyptian and Algerian legislations. The study used the descriptive comparative methodology to reach the targets in question. To gather the required data, a review of literature was administered. The study came to the conclusions that: first, the Egyptian Law stipulates that the authorities must be notified about the place and the date of the demonstration in advance whereas the Algerian Law stipulates that the notification is not enough and the demonstrations have to get an official licence to be made; second, the Algerian Law bans political demonstrations on public roads at day time, but the Egyptian Law entitles the administrative bodies to set the place and the time of demonstrations in the light of public interest; third, the Algerian Law penalises the illegal demonstrations only by dispersion, but the Egyptian Law imposes fining as a penalty; fourth, the Egyptian Law equalises the penalty of aiding and abetting violent demonstrations that results in its effects with that it doesn't, but the Algerian Law doesn't. It individualises the penalty; fifth, neither the Egyptian Law nor the Algerian Law pay due attention to protect the demonstrators from the misuse of power. The study recommended that the Egyptian and Algerian legislators ought to regulate articles that criminalise and penalise aggressive acts against the demonstrators. Keywords: peaceful demonstrations, Egyptian legislation, Algerian legislation.
