Fairmont witness released pending investigation
The public prosecutor has released one of the witnesses held in the Fairmont [redacted] assault case pending investigation. Ahmed El Ganzoury has been held for some four months for his alleged connection to the incident, which took place in a Nile Fairmont suite following a party he hosted in February 2014. Two other suspects, Nazli Karim and Seif Bedour — who were reportedly detained after coming forward to testify in support of the victim — were released this month. The incident first came to light last summer when the victim of the attack posted anonymous testimony online and filed a formal charge accusing the men of [redacted] her in the hotel. Five of the seven young men charged with perpetrating the assault were arrested late last year but two remain at large.
