Nine people have been arrested in Egypt accused of “debauchery” for being gay after their neighbors complained on their strange behavior. The Dekheila Prosecution in Alexandria arrested the men after they were reported for being “weird” and having guests in their apartment too often. According to reports, investigations ensued after an estate agent rented the property for mass orgies, they kept in secret what the flat was rented for, they used coded language not to reveal the secret. In September last year, the waving of a rainbow flag at a music concert was extensively derided in the press – leading to a dramatic crackdown. Two of the people arrested at the time, Sarah Hegazy, 28, and Ahmed Alaa, 21, were earlier this month fined and released from jail. The lawyer, Amr Mohamed, said the pair were each fined 2,000 Egyptian pounds, around $113. According to tweets from the Network, it is not clear when the new trial is expected.
