Egyptian Women Get 2 Years In Prison For TikTok Dance Videos

An Egyptian court sentenced five young women to two years in prison Monday for posting “indecent” dance videos on TikTok, as reported by the Associated Press and other outlets.

The prosecution statement named two of the defendants, Haneen Hossam and Mawada Eladhm and said the other three helped run their social media accounts.

According to a statement from the public prosecutor, the women were also fined 300,000 Egyptian pounds (nearly $19,000) each for “violating the values and principles of the Egyptian family,” inciting debauchery and promoting human trafficking.
