A Lebanese tourist arrested last month after posting a video to Facebook saying she was sexually harassed in Egypt was sentenced to eight years in prison on Saturday.
Reuters reports that Mona el-Mazboh was arrested at Cairo airport after her 10-minute video calling Egypt a “son of a b—- country” went viral.
The article goes on to state the following:
The 24-year-old woman tells of being sexually harassed by men in taxis and on the street and an incident in which money was stolen from her during a previous visit, the wire service reports.
The court found her guilty of deliberately spreading false rumors that would harm society, attacking religion and public indecency, sources told Reuters.
The case’s appeal will be heard on July 29, her lawyer Emad Kamal said.
“Of course, God willing, the verdict will change. With all due respect to the judiciary, this is a severe ruling. It is in the context of the law, but the court was applying the maximum penalty,” Kamal said, according to Reuters.
