Summary
Article summary: 

Some expressed their desire that the Central Authority [for Public Mobilization and] Statistics (CAPMAS) supervise the funds of all churches and submit a report of each church to the People’s Assembly because the CAPMAS is affiliated to the Parliament. But in fact, the funds of the Church could not be supervised and monitored by the CAPMAS because the money of the Church is private and not public. Each church, in Egypt, has its own funds, which are managed by each church’s board. This board is comprised of 10 civil members chosen by the people of each church on the bases of honesty, integrity, and good reputation.

Summary
Article summary: 

A deacon from Daqahlia commented on Al-Midan’s article "The emigrant Copts and the money of the church." He said the article was about the churches of the orthodox denomination, whose leader is Pope Shenouda but it was based on the opinion of a Protestant pastor. A thing that he considered not good. The article mentioned that when Pope Shenouda III was asked about the number of Christians in Egypt, he smiled and gave no answer. That was because he knew the numbers according to the Central Organization of Public Mobilization and Statistics, which he believed were all wrong.
