Policeman faces life sentence for sexual assault of handicapped prisoner

Security tapes showed conscript attacked young girl inside police station


A police conscript was sentenced to life in prison by the Giza Criminal Court on Sunday over charges of sexually assaulting a mentally ill female prisoner inside Imbaba police station, officials said.

The court used security camera tapes as evidence against the policeman, along with the testimonies of the victim’s cellmates, despite that the Forensic Medicine Authority did not medically support the victim’s claims.

The incident goes back to August 2014, when an 18-year-old mentally ill girl was detained at the station. The charged officer was seen on camera entering the female prisoners’ cell, dragging the victim out and assaulting her.

The Ministry of Interior had not denied the incident at the time, issuing a press statement that the event was under prosecution authority investigations.
