5 Female Egyptian Tiktok Influencers Have Been Sentenced To Two Years For Sharing Indecent Videos

An Egyptian court on Monday sentenced five young women to two years in pr!son each for posting “ind-ecent videos” on the video-sharing app TikTok.

Social media influencers Haneen Hossam, Mowada al-Adham, and three other women, who weren’t publicly identified, were found gu!lty of promoting imm*rality and “vi*lating public morals,” Agence France-Presse reported.

Hossam is a 20-year-old Cairo University student who has about one million followers on TikTok and Instagram.

She was arr*sted in April after posting a clip explaining how girls could earn money by working with her to broadcast videos — which authorities interp*eted as promotion for young women to sell s*x online, according to the South China Morning Post.

Authorities arr*sted Adham in May after she posted sat!rical videos on TikTok and Instagram, where she has at least two million followers.

The three other women were cha*ged with helping Hossam and Al-Adham manage their social media accounts.The sentences, which can still be appealed, also included a $19,000 f!ne for each of the women.

Their lawyer Ahmed Hamza al-Bahqiry said the women were also facing separate cha*ges over the sources of their funds.

Egypt, a conservative Musl!m nation, has been cra*king down on female singers and dancers over online content it de-ems too suggestive.Women’s rights lawyer Intissar Al-Saeed said the recent verdict was “sho*king but expected.”

“It is still a dan*erous indicator…,” the attorney told AFP. “Regardless of the div*rgent views on the content presented by the girls on TikTok, it still is not a reason for impr!sonment.”
