El-Ganzoury had organised the techno-dance party of mid-February 2014 that reportedly preceded the after-party held in a Nile Fairmont suite, where the rape allegedly took place.
 
His release came amid an online campaign by his friends and family demanding his release as a witness in the case.
 
It comes only two weeks after the prosecution ordered the release of Nazli Mostafa Karim and Seif Ahmed Bedour, two other defendants in the case, after four months of detention.
 
El-Ganzoury, Karim, and Bedour were apprehended at just about the same time.
 
The case went viral in July after an anonymous Instagram account published posts accusing a group of young men of being involved in a gang rape following a party at the hotel.
 
Five defendants were arrested and two remain at large, reportedly out of the country, after the culprits' names and photos were circulated on social media platforms.
