Salafi preacher sentenced for forging naked photos of actress



A court has sentenced a Salafi preacher for defaming actress Elham Shahin, after he was found to have forged naked photographs of her.

Abdallah Badr, Salafi presenter on the Al-Hafez satellite channel, received a five-year suspended sentence, as well as a LE20,000 fine and LE2,000 bail for defaming Shahin.

Badr and his defense did not attend the Azbakeya Misdemeanor Court session on Monday.

Another court previously sentenced the preacher to one year in prison with a LE20,000 fine and LE5,000 bail on the same charges.
