MADRID, 13 (EUROPA PRESS)

An Egyptian court has overturned the prison sentences handed down in 2020 against two women known as ‘The TikTok girls’ for posting “indecent” content on this network, as confirmed by their lawyer, Hussein al Baqar.

The two ‘influencers’, Hanin Hossam and Mauada Eladm, were sentenced to two years in prison along with three other women accused of complicity with them, although Al Baqar has indicated that Hossam has been acquitted of all charges, while on Eladm will continue to weigh a fine, as has been collected by the independent portal Mada Masr.

Both had been sentenced for “promoting immorality” and “violating family values” through comments and videos posted through Tik Tok. Thus, the court ruled that they had used the platform to “promote debauchery.”

Eladm, arrested on May 14, 2020, has 3.1 million followers on ‘Tik Tok’ and another 1.6 million on Instagram and became famous for posting videos of dancing and singing. Hossam, who has 1.2 million followers on ‘Tik Tok,’ was arrested on April 21.

Hossam was also charged with a video published on the aforementioned social network in which she encouraged women to post live videos and talk to strangers in exchange for money, which has led the authorities to accuse her of trying to exploit the situation of need to other women and collaboration with human trafficking networks.
