This 29 September video is called Breaking News – Egypt activist sentenced over ‘fake news‘.

Tranlated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Egyptian human rights activist gets 2 years in prison due to video

The Egyptian human rights activist Amal Fathy has been sentenced to two years’ imprisonment because she posted a video on social media in which she criticized the government. In that video she said that the Egyptian government is failing to improve the living conditions in the country and in protecting women from sexual harassment. She also has to pay a fine of nearly 500 euros.

Fathy was arrested in May, after complaining in the 12-minute video about sexual harassment in taxis, bad service at banks, crowded traffic and general living conditions in the country. She was charged with “spreading fake news“, making her a risk for national security and public decency.
