Thu, Feb. 8, 2018
CAIRO - 8 February 2018: On Wednesday, the National Security Agency ordered the deportation of the Russian belly dancer Eicatrina Andreeva, known as Jawhara from Egypt.
In a phone interview with the TV Program Al Ahera Masa'an (10 PM) broadcasted on Satellite Channel Dream TV, Jawahra’s lawyer Mohamed Saleh stated that the decision to deport Gawhara boiled down to the interests of Egyptian security.
On Tuesday, the 31-year-old Russian was under investigation over inciting debauchery and arousing sexual instincts of young people, as she appeared “semi-naked” in a viral, provocative dancing video.
Accompanied by a translator during the investigations, Jawhara added that she was wearing a dancing suit that is no different than those donned by many belly dancers in Egypt.
According to the Giza prosecution’s preliminary reports, Jawhara was also arrested over not having a work permit, to which she responded that she is fond of belly dancing and got to work at a night club in Giza to earn money.
Tourism and Antiquities Police stated that Gawhara was wearing a non-standard dancing outfit and was featured in a viral video flaunting her body and pointing to private parts of her body in a racy manner, according to the findings of the preliminary investigation previously announced by the prosecution.
