Moroccan actress Mariam Hussein has thanked the UAE for granting her amnesty after she was charged with dancing provocatively in public.
According to Morocco World News, Hussein faced a one month jail term and deportation when a case was filed against her after video surfaced in 2017 of her dancing suggestively with American rapper Tyga.
Hussein was arrested in February 2018 and denied the charges, arguing that she was unaware that the singer was so close to her as her back had been turned to him.
"I was pardoned by the state of justice and law," the Moroccan national wrote in an Instagram post.
"I would like to thank my country, the United Arab Emirates. May this country grow more glorious and prosperous. I especially would like to thank our sovereign leaders and our sheikhs, the rulers of the state, who laid the foundations of justice and equality for all those who live in this nation which is dear to our hearts," the 31-year-old actress continued.
"Today I'm reaping the fruits of justice and I ask Almighty to add to the glory and pride of this country over time, and I would like to thank everyone who supported me in the moments of trouble, which passed in peace."
