“It hurt me and my family to see such video published publicly everywhere on tv and social media” Salem said, adding that he ‘just wanted to keep his job at the clinic’.
As for the doctor who appeared in the video, he claimed that his mobile phone was hacked and the hackers were blackmailing him to restore his date back.
The doctor called Amr Khairy, added that half of the video is fabricated, and that he never asked the nurse to kneel for his dog.
The nurse, Adel Salem, however, affirmed that the whole situation took place as it was showed, six months ago.
