Cairo, 8 June (AKI) – A member of the Egyptian parliament from the conservative Salafist Al Nour party has denied reports he was caught by police having sex in a car with a 19 -year-old student.
The Al-Ahram Arabic news website and other online news organisation said Ali Wanis on Thursday was spotted by police ”engaging in an indecent act with a 19-year-old college student.”
He issued a statement on Friday denying the reports, accusing a police officer of fabricating the incident.
He said the accusation was part of a blackmail campaign aimed at smearing his reputation and the image of the Islamist political current.
The reports said Ali Wanis was able to avoid arrest because of immunity granted to politicians.
