Former MP gets four months in prison for indecency



The Toukh Misdemeanor Court sentenced former Salafi MP Ali Wanees

on Wednesday to four months in prison after his failed appeal attempt against a conviction in absentia for indecency.

The court convicted him of committing an obscene act with a college student in his car on an agricultural road in Qalyubiya, where he was arrested in June.

A Qalyubiya court had previously sentenced Wanees in absentia to one year imprisonment or a fine of LE1,000 in exchange for not serving time. He was also sentenced to six months in prison or a fine of LE500 on charges of assaulting police.
