Today, the Cairo Economic Court postponed the trial of Ahmed Bassam Zaki, who sexually harassed more than 100 girls, to 9 January.

The reason for this postponing is giving the court the chance to hear the witnesses' testimonies.

Zaki was referred to the Cairo Economic Court to stand trial after he was accused of harassing two girls and sending them sexual content, regardless of their permissions.

From 2016 to 2020, the accused harassed two girls through various mobile applications like WhatsApp by sending them various sexual content.

It is worthy to mention that Zaki made an initial appearance at the Cairo Criminal Court last month after accusing him of raping three -18 years old girls and blackmailing them.

In the same context, the Egyptian Public Prosecution briefed the police investigations, witnesses testimonies, checking evidence and the Department of Forensic Medicine reports.

Moreover, it reviewed what the accused presented such as screenshots and text messages between him and the victims in addition to a sample from cannabis.
