Egyptian police on Tuesday captured a Tiktok star who has been condemned to 10 years detainment for her posts via web-based media.
Haneen Hossam, a 20-year-old Cairo University understudy who turned into an influencer on video sharing application Tiktok, was condemned in absentia on Sunday close by four others.
While every one of the five were fined 2,000 Egyptian pounds (£9,160) for urging ladies to share recordings in return for cash, which Egyptian specialists likened to illegal exploitation, Ms Hossam got a harsher jail sentence, which her legal counselor credited to her not showing up in court.
“It was her legitimate right not to appear,” said her legal advisor Hani Sameh, declaring she would request her sentence. “We trust that she can get a diminished prison sentence or an absolution.”
On Monday Ms Hossam delivered a video asking for forgiveness, saying she had never hurt anybody.
