They were arrested last Monday after The Dekheila Prosecution in Alexandria received information that “weird young men” have been visiting the apartment. Investigations indicated that the apartment was rented to host group-sex parties only allowed to those who know special codes known to the community members for secrecy and safety purposes.
Head of the Alexandria Security Directorate, Mustafa al-Nimr, deemed the men’s behavior a “threat to public security,” in his statement on the matter.
