UK man arrested in Egypt for ’pat on the back’ is released

A British man detained on sexual assault charges in Egypt has been freed. The charges against Tony Camoccio, 51, were dismissed in court for lack of evidence. Tony was arrested at airport security in the Egyptian town of Hurghada last week, after what officials insisted was him having made sexual and inappropriate gestures at a police officer. His family insists it was just a ’pat on the back’.

In a Muslim country, a strange man putting his hand on a woman's shoulder can be interpreted as a sexual assault. Simultaneously, her husband beating the crap out of her can be viewed as a reasonable disciplinary action.

I'd rather go to China and lick public door handles at the moment than go on holidays in an Islamic country.

Another reason to not go to Islamic countries. Another reason to ban Islam.
