Mummies arrested

Egypt independent reports that a number of men were arrested in an apartment in Alexandria, Egypt, about ten days ago, for homosexuality.

Police at Dekheila Police Station received information claiming that “weird” young men had frequently visited an apartment on Gameeya Street, Hanoville, in western Alexandria.

Subsequent investigations indicated that a real estate agent rented the apartment months ago, and used it to host group-sex parties.

The men had security measures in place.

…the men – perhaps fearing police repercussions – imposed a wall of secrecy on their activity, and did not allow strangers to approach the apartment or see their personalities, customers were received after using special codes known to members of the community.

Homosexuality is not illegal in Egypt. Since the 1990s, police have been employing a 1950 anti-prostitution law and a 1961 law against “debauchery” to arrest and imprison homosexuals.
