Egyptian Businessman Gets 3 Years In Prison For Sexually Assaulting Minors

Egyptian businessman Mohamed Al-Amin was sentenced to three years in prison on charges of human trafficking and sexually assaulting seven minor girls in an orphanage he founded.

“The defendant hosted the victims in an orphanage he owned (Upper Egypt’s Safe Hands Home for Girls) for the purpose of sexual abuse,” Egypt Today quoted a statement issued by the prosecutor-general’s office.

The Cairo Criminal Court also ordered Al-Amin to pay a fine of 200,000 Egyptian pounds (around $11,000).

Al-Amin reportedly threatened the minor girls that he will expel them from the orphanage if they reported to the police.

The court did not specify the nature of Al-Amin’s sexual assault, but the girls were not raped as per as Forensic Authority’s reports.

Al-Amin strongly rejected all the accusations and said they were baseless. 

Al-Amin was was arrested in January and his orphanage was closed last year after the sexual allegation report.
