The Egyptian Public Prosecutor referred, on Saturday, businessman Mohamed al-Amin to the Criminal Court on charges of human trafficking for molesting and threatening seven young girls. The prosecution said in a statement that the accusation against Amin was proven by the testimony of 13 witnesses, the statements of the victims, and what was found by examining the accused’s mobile phone.
More evidence came through reports of the Forensic Medicine Authority, the National Council for Childhood and Motherhood, and the Psychological and Social Research of the Ministry of Social Solidarity.
The investigations concluded that the defendant was harboring the victims in a home he established for orphans, abusing his authority over them to satisfy his desires.
He intimidated them with threats of beating and expulsion if they reported him.
The victims testified with the details of the abuse they were subjected to from the defendant. The investigations also found that Amin maintained a daily presence in the house where the incident occurred on successive days.
