An Egyptian court has convicted Egyptian controversial singer/actress Ruby to a one year jail sentence and a fine of one thousand Egyptian pounds for not paying taxes overdue.
Ruby had received a sum of one million Egyptian pounds for her role in the recent film “Al Waed” (The promise), which she starred in alongside prominent Egyptian actor Mahmoud Yasin and actor Aser Yaseen, and failed to pay taxes for the amount she received. It is said that she owed the taxation department 200 thousand pounds but failed to pay them and so she was prosecuted and convicted.
Ruby did not make any public statement regarding her jail sentence. It is said that she will attempt to make mends with the taxation department and pay all the taxes she owes in return of having all charges dropped.
