Taymour El-Sobky was sentenced by a misdemeanour court on Saturday to three years in prison and an EGP 200 fine on charges of “insulting the women of Upper Egypt” and spreading false news that disturbs public peace.

El-Sobky quickly backtracked on his claims following the uproar. He said he has only respect for the women of Upper Egypt because his mother is from Qena and he did not mean to insult them, claiming that his statement was taken out of context.
