Yesterday, Egyptian judiciary canceled the prison sentence issued against Egyptian belly dancer Sama Al-Masri for a period of two years in the case known in the media as "Insulting Reham Said."
The rule of the Cairo Economic Appeals Court settled for Sama’s imprisonment for 6 months, accepting the appeal submitted by her lawyer to ease the two-year prison sentence, and the fine of 100,000 pounds, for accusing her of insulting and defaming journalist Reham Said.
In another case, the same court decided to postpone the appeal submitted by Sama Al-Masri to the ruling issued by the Economic Misdemeanor Court of punishing her with two years imprisonment and obligating her to pay a fine of 300 thousand pounds "approximately $19,000," in the case known in the media as "assault on the values of society," until November 16 session.
The Egyptian Public Prosecutor had issued a decision to imprison Sama Al-Masri, accusing her of publishing pictures and video clips of her through her own accounts on social media which are offensive to public modesty, and her publically committing indecent acts, including seduction and prostitution.
