Dina’s ex-husband found innocent of pornographic scandal
An appeals court in Cairo has released a verdict in the lawsuit against Egyptian businessman Hussam Abu El Fotooh, who was accused of filming pornographic videos of his ex-wife belly dancer Dina, finding the defendant innocent of all allegations. The court also cancelled the one-year sentence against Hussam after charges were dropped.
The court stressed that there was not enough tangible evidence against Hussam to convict him of filming the videos against the wishes of Dina. The dancer had also had a major effect on the verdict the court released when she dropped all charges against Hussam and revealed that she had consented to the filming.
Dina also testified that the pornographic CD, which featured her and Hussam in a very intimate situation and was seeped out to the public and on the internet, was in fact filmed in his home and office in London, which was the claim of Hussam’s defense attorney.
Hussam’s attorney in turn demanded that the case be dropped, especially after Dina made her testimony, and added that the pornographic scenes were filmed abroad and an Egyptian court cannot determine if such actions are legal or not in London.
Dina had filed a lawsuit against her ex-husband Hussam for violating her rights while she was married to him and making pornography films of her without her knowledge. Dina had intended to make sure that Hussam pays the price for the fact that it is against the law for a man to film his wife in such an indecent circumstance.
