Egyptian Actress Faces 5-Years Jail Term for 'EXPOSING HER LEGS' at an Event

Rania Youssef could spend five year behind bars after she sparked outrage on Thursday

A MOVIE star could spend five years in prison for wearing a dress which showed her legs at a film festival in Cairo and was deemed IMMORAL by Islamic authorities in Egypt.

Rania Youssef could spend half a decade behind bars after she sparked outrage during the closing ceremony of a film festival in the Egyptian capital. She wore a black leotard with a transparent over-dress embellished with sequined criss-cross detailing and a bow belt. Ms Youssef was charged with “inciting immorality and promoting vice” after a group of lawyers complained to Egypt’s chief prosecutor.

The charges were brought by Amro Abdelsalam and Samir Sabri, who are known for taking celebrities to court.
Ms Sabri said: “Ms Youssef's appearance did not meet societal values, traditions and morals and therefore undermined the reputation of the festival and the reputation of Egyptian women in particular.”
The actress, 44, will face trial on January 12.
