Ahram Online , Wednesday 19 Jul 2017

A North Cairo prosecution referred on Wednesday two men accused of raping and filming a woman in Imbaba district in 2016 to the criminal court.

The defendants are accused of abducting the victim from the Sahel Shoubra district before taking her to Imbaba, where they raped her in an apartment after threatening her with weapons, according to the prosecution.

The men then allegedly robbed the victim of her jewelry and filmed her, threatening her with exposure if she reported the incident.

The defendants were arrested after the victim reported the crime in November 2016.

According to Egyptian law, the defendants could face the death penalty if convicted.

In May 2017, Egyptian prison authorities executed a 22-year-old man convicted of raping and murdering a five-year-old girl in Upper Egypt's Minya governorate in 2014.
