Egypt: House of Representatives approves data protection law

OneTrust DataGuidance confirmed, on 24 February 2020, with Mohamed Hashish, Partner at Soliman, Hashish & Partners, that Egypt's first law on data protection ('the Law') had passed the House of Representatives. In particular, Hashish stated that, "The Egyptian [House of Representatives] has just finally approved the Law and, therefore, it is now subject to the issuance by the Egyptian President [unless] he has any comments, which is very unlikely."
