The Egyptian TikTok phenomenon has come to the fore in the past, when women were accused of dressing inappropriately, dancing and breaking country rules. However, according to the latest news from the country, this time the accusation and the punishment given in return caused much more serious reactions.
Last year, five women in Egypt were sentenced to two years in prison and a fine of 200 thousand Egyptian liras for “violating public morals” on the grounds of their TikTok posts.
State newspaper Al Ahram reported, “Muvada El Edham, Haneen Hossam and three others were sentenced to two years in prison and fined 200,000 Egyptian liras.” 20-year-old college student Haneen Hossam, who has close to 2 million followers, has been arrested after she shared a video in April where she said “women can make more money by working with him”.
After this backlash, Haneen Hossam was not in trouble. Moreover, this time the young woman faces a much more serious accusation and punishment.
In the case in Cairo, the young woman, a TikTok phenomenon, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for ‘directing other women to video sharing platforms and encouraging them to post inappropriate images’. According to the news in the Daily Mail, the reason why the penalty is so high is that these accusations against the woman are directly evaluated in the ‘human trafficking’ category.
While Haneen Hossam’s lawyer announced that they would appeal the sentence, the young woman was arrested by the police because she did not attend the hearing. The young woman’s lawyer told Reuters that they are waiting for the verdict of acquittal or at least reduced sentence.
Along with Haneen Hossam, 6 women, including influencer Mowada al-Adham, were sentenced to 6 years in prison. The justification for their punishment is also the accusation of human trafficking.
“10 years! I didn’t do anything immoral to deserve all this. I was jailed for 10 months and didn’t say a word after I was released… Why do you want to jail me again?” she said.
