CAIRO: Reda el-Fouly, a woman jailed for “inciting debauchery” in an amateur video clip, will not partake in songs again, her lawyer Abdou Mohamed told Youm7 Thursday.
Fouly has been released after serving a six-month prison term, which was commuted from a year.
Posted on May 18, a video of a song title “sib eedi” (hands off) triggered a controversy among users of social networks as it showed Fouly in a strappy dress suggestively belly-dancing and shaking her breasts at the camera in close-up.
The video, which has been viewed over 2.3 million times on Youtube, is about a girl who enjoys being harassed in Cairo’s busy metro. The Egyptian-American director of the song, Wael Elsediki, was sentenced in absentia to one year in prison.
