Egyptian pleads guilty to abusing Guyanese hotel maid in NY

NEW YORK,  (Reuters) – A former Egyptian banker  pleaded guilty in a New York court yesterday to a criminal  charge that he sexually abused a hotel maid and now faces a  multimillion dollar civil suit in connection with the case.

Mahmoud Abdel-Salam Omar, 74, a former chairman of the Bank  of Alexandria and the Egyptian American Bank, was sentenced to  one year probation after doing five days community service.    He was arrested in late May on charges of abusing the maid  when she delivered tissues to his room at the Pierre Hotel on  Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
