Social media influencers Haneen Hossam

Hossam is a 20-year-old student at Cairo University, with about a million followers on TikTok and Instagram.

She was arrested in April after posting a clip explaining how the girls could make money working with her to broadcast videos – which authorities interpreted as promoting young women to sell sex online, according to the South China Morning Post.

Authorities arrested Adham

Authorities arrested Adham in May after posting satirical videos on TikTok and Instagram, where she has at least two million followers.

The other three women were accused of helping Hossam and Al-Adham manage their social media accounts.

The sentences, which can still be appealed, also included a $ 19,000 fine for each of the women.

Their lawyer, Ahmed Hamza al-Bahqiry, said the women also face separate charges from sources of their funds.

Women’s rights lawyer Intissar al-Saeed said the recent verdict was “shocking but expected”.

“It is still a dangerous indicator …”, the lawyer told AFP. “Regardless of the differing opinions on the content presented by the girls on TikTok, this is still not a reason for arrest.”
