Egyptian singer sentenced to two years in prison for a frank clip 

A similar sentence was handed down to the director.

Frame from the clip

The Egyptian court sentenced the 21-year-old singer Shima to two years in prison, who appeared in a video in lingerie, and in the frame she ate a banana and an apple ambiguously. She was convicted of “a call to debauchery.”

She was arrested in November. Even before her arrest, Shima apologized and stated that she had not expected such a violent reaction to her video and public pressure.

The director of the video clip was sentenced in absentia to a two-year prison term. The verdict has not yet entered into force, and it can be appealed.
