Tik Tok X

An Egyptian economic court sentenced on Tuesday a young woman to three years in prison over posting “indecent” videos on TikTok, a popular social media platform.

The court said the contents of the videos posted by Renad Emad, who was arrested last year and later released pending investigation, violated familial and social values in Egypt. The woman was also fined 100,000 Egyptian pounds (over 6,000 U.S. dollars).

The court also charged Emad with human trafficking for letting her younger sister to appear in the videos for higher view rates.

Tuesday’s court ruling is still appealable.Egypt has arrested several female social media influencers in the past two years over similar charges, some of whom were handed appealable jail terms while the others were released pending investigation.
