Egyptian media and business CEO Mohamed Al-Amin was detained on Friday, 7 January, after being accused of human trafficking and assaulting underage girls at an orphanage he owns in Upper Egypt.

The Egyptian Public Prosecution released a statement on Saturday, 8 January, stating that it had decided to arrest Al-Amin, the owner and founder of television network CBC Egypt, after receiving various evidence, including statements from victims.

However, investigations are still underway and more girls are yet to give their testimonies, according to the Prosecution’s statement.
