Egypt's al-Sisi weighs in on sexual harassment

Published: 06.10.14, 15:36 / Israel News

 

CAIRO - Egypt's new president on Tuesday ordered his interior minister to do whatever it takes to combat sexual harassment, weighing in on one of the nation's most troubling social ills after a string of sexual assaults marred weekend celebrations marking his inauguration.

 

A presidential spokesman said Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi also called for the decisive implementation of a new law that punishes convicted harassers with up to five years in prison. Describing sexual harassment as a phenomena "alien" to Egypt, he quoted al-Sisi as also calling for the restoration of the "real and moral" values of Egypt's streets. (AP)
