Tik Tok influencers in Cairo, Egypt were convicted of human trafficking by a Criminal court
As per reports, Haneen Hossam, 20 was sentenced to 10 years in jail and a fine of 200,000 pounds while 22-year-old Mawada El Adhamwas was sentenced to six-year jail and fined 200,000 pounds.
They were imprisoned for encouraging young women to record indecent videos and post footage on the video-sharing app in exchange for money.
They were detained last year and later handed out a two year-sentence each for violating the values and principles of the Egyptian family and provoking debauchery.
On January 12, their two-year-sentence was cancelled after they were acquitted of violating family morals. But a week later, the court upheld an appeal overturning jail sentences on charges of human trafficking.
Hossam was arrested in April 2020 on charges of asking young women to share indecent videos on Tik Tok app, while El Adham was arrested in May 2020 after sharing indecent video clips on Instagram.
