Cairo criminal court considers on Monday first session in the trial of Controversial anchor، Reham Saeed over alleged incitement in Child abduction case.
Saeed arrived in Court dressed in white Jail uniform amid tight security.
Noteworthy، Egypt’s prosecution has summoned a controversial Egyptian anchor and her program’s director following an episode they aired on the kidnapping of children in Egypt.
The prosecution also ordered the detention of the program’s producer and photographer for 15 days in relation to the case on charges of “inciting the kidnapping of two children to prepare an episode of the program.”
During investigations، the program producer said she was assigned by her editor to contact a young man called Islam who presumably discovered “a gang that kidnaps children and puts them up for sale.”
Through this person، the producer added، she got in touch with the gang، and “told them she wanted to buy two children for 300،000 Egyptian pounds.”
The producer said that on the day she was going to meet the gang، Interior ministry officials had been informed of the location and timing at which the kidnappers were going to hand the children.
The police raided the location، freed the children and arrested the kidnappers، she added.
But she was later surprised to find out that the kidnappers are accusing her of “inciting the kidnapping of those children” after she offered money in return.
The program producer and photographer remain in custody pending investigation.
