So, it’s been days since several young brave women started to break out of their silence and speak out about the sickening situations they had with Ahmed Bassam Zaki.
Their voices were heard, their voices led to severe actions and it’s time now to carry on with what they have started!
Yesterday, sex offender Ahmed Bassam Zaki was apprehended by the police, according to a statement released by the office of the Egyptian Public Prosecution.
This is great news yes, but we shouldn’t be entirely relieved just yet! It’s true that for now, he is under arrest but they will let him go if the women harmed don’t come forward and speak up about what happened.
Everything that you have done so far, confessing on Assault Police’s page, sharing evidence online, winning the public opinion to your side, all of these wonderful acts have led to this point but it’s time to finish what YOU started.
In order for this sexual predator to go to prison, you HAVE to come forward and go the police.
This is why it’s important and here’s everything that you need to know about the process of reporting him.
1- Your identity will remain anonymous to the public! No records will be held against you, your identity will remain safe.
2- If you’re hesitant because you don’t have enough evidence, that IS okay! At this point, it’s NOT your job to provide evidence, this is the investigative police’s job.
3- Your lawyer will handle everything, it will just be you, the judge and him in a private room, not a court like you see in movies, hence no audience!
Now if you don’t or can’t afford to hire a lawyer, Assault Police is generously offering you all the help that you need. Check the link below.

We know how hard it is, we know how traumatizing it is having to relive such a painful memory, but it is your courageous acts that got us here and it’s time to finish what YOU started.
Remember, this isn’t just about you anymore, it’s about every silent girl who got harassed before and didn’t have the chance to speak up. You’re becoming the voice of these young women, you are speaking on behalf of many traumatized girls and women.
It’s because of you that girls have started to share their own stories and experiences with harassment and rape. It’s because of you that girls are standing hand in hand, supporting one another and hearing each other out.
You have raised awareness to both men and women. You have come a long way and it’s time to reach the end of the tunnel.
If you’re still worried about the process, Egyptian writer and director Selim Abo Mosallam has contacted several lawyers and explained in the video below the entire process and what to expect.
You’re powerful and you’re strong. This is the closure you need and the justice many girls seek.
You can do this!
Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox Church Suspends Services for One Month
Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox churches have announced the suspension of masses and other services in both Cairo and Alexandria as of Monday and the suspension will last for a month.
The suspension comes in light of the rising numbers of Covid-19 cases among clergymen and churchgoers.
The Coptic Orthodox Church on Saturday released an official statement that says the suspension includes Sunday’s schools, meetings, services and masses, and that priests in each church are allowed one mass weekly with a minimal presence and a maximum of five deacons only.
As for funeral services, they’re allowed to be held but with the participation of only one priest and one deacon and of course the family of the deceased. However, the halls that are designated for mourning services will be closed until the improvement of current conditions.
For Baptism services, the maximum number allowed are four member of the baby’s family.
The statement added that study at institutes and educational centres will carry on but with a reduced maximum of 25%.
As for the dioceses, each bishop get to decide what is most suitable to the health situation in his diocese, in partnership with the congregation of priests.
We urge all worshipers to remain safe and adhere to all the precautionary measures needed.
