CAIRO – 14 April 2021: The Egyptian Public Prosecution ordered on Tuesday referring a doctor to the criminal court on accusations of kidnapping six female children and indecently assaulting them.

The prosecution also referred his wife to the criminal court as she is believed to be his partner in crime.

The main defendant, Michael Fahmy, is accused of luring the six female children into his house and clinic, exploiting their young age, the prosecution said in a statement.

He is accused of indecently assaulting them by force after deluding them into thinking that they need treatment and special examination.

According to the prosecution, Fahmy’s wife is accused of helping him in committing these crimes as she was present during his meetings with some of the victims and their relatives to reassure them about the treatment methods of her husband.

The wife’s behavior, according to the prosecution, enabled Fahmy to be alone with the victims and commit those crimes.

The prosecution said it has had firm evidence against the two defendants after listening to Fahmy and the testimony of 12 witnesses.

Inspecting Fahmy’s house, the prosecution said it could also find written messages from the victims and CDs that included sexual footage of the crimes that he committed.

The prosecution said it also inspected the data on computer and the mobile phones of the two defendants, including the conversations, voice and visual recordings and pictures.

The Egyptian National Library and Archives revealed the defendant wrote a pamphlet that included qualities he described himself with to the victims, which are contrary to the truth, the prosecution said.

The Egyptian Medical Syndicate and the Central Department for Free Therapy and Medical Licenses also revealed that the doctor has not registered any private medical institution, the prosecution said.
