His Grace Anba Ermia, General Bishop and head of the Coptic Orthodox Cultural Center, said that confronting radical thoughts need that everyone unite and agree on a clear plan to correct the misconceptions of many whether members of terrorist and radical groups or others, pointing out that law and the Constitution is crucially needed at this time.
His Grace explained during his participation at “Legal awareness for the Development of National Awareness” Forum held at the Supreme Council of Culture on Sunday, April 15, 2018, that the constitution is the document that defines the relation between the ruler and the governed and clarifies the form and system of the state and the government and Constitutional and legal awareness is a complementary work, as law illiteracy causes unrest and trouble.
