Court sentences singer to two-year in prison over Inciting debauchery

Tue, Feb. 27, 2018
CAIRO – 27 February 2018: Giza Misdemeanor Court sentenced Laila Amer, the singer of controversial song “Bos Omak”, to two years in prison over charges of inciting debauchery and public disgrace, through a song released on Internet raising controversy among the public.

The court also imprisoned the director and producer of the clip Samir and the co-actor Magdy for six and three months, respectively. Moreover, other four crew members were handed in absentia different sentences in jail, ranging between six months and two years.

The Giza Public Prosecutor’s office charged the indicted over using hidden sexual innuendos in the clip “Bos Omak” (which is metaphor of an curse word).

Laila’s defense lawyer said that she had nothing to do with it, but was just carrying out instructions from the director, and that the charges assigned to her were legally refuted, which he presented to the judge while considering the renewal of her imprisonment.

In late December 2017, there was a like case with another singer named Shima, who was jailed for two years over the same charges of debauchery and publishing an anti-public chastity video.
