Casro: An Egyptian appeals court on Tuesday acquitted two young women accused of “attacking the values of society” through videos posted on Tiktuk.
“The appellate court accepted the appeal filed by Haneen Hassam and Moaz al-Atham against their imprisonment,” the official said on condition of anonymity.
The women were sentenced in July 2020 to two years in prison for “violating public morals.” Hossam was arrested in April after posting a video on Tik Tok, in which he told his 1.3 million users that girls could work with him for money.
He was charged with “inciting immorality”, “violating public morality” and “human trafficking”. Edham, who has nearly two million Instagram followers, was also arrested in May after posting satirical videos. Conservatives are among a dozen “influencers” arrested in 2020 on charges of “violating public morality” in the country.
