In may of this year a tourist recorded a video about your spoiled holiday in Egypt and was soon arrested at Cairo airport while trying to leave the country.

In an official statement, the 24 year old was charged with spreading "false rumors which aim to undermine society and attack religions" as she aggressively criticized the country, and described Egyptians as "beggars" and Egyptian women as "prostitutes".

Mazbouh eventually posted another an apology and deleted the offending video.

Mazbouh said in the video that she had visited Egypt several times in the past four years.

He also said that he hopes that the Egyptian authorities would look beyond his daughter's mistake given her young age and naivety.

Mazbouh was initially handed down 11 years but the sentence was later reduced to eight.


Of course, God willing, the verdict will change. She also suffers from depression, he said.

"Military prosecutors continued to send hundreds of civilians to military trials in cases related to political dissent, whether violent or peaceful", the rights group reported. With all due respect to the judiciary, this is a severe ruling.

The video went viral, prompting many Egyptian women to take to social media with their own videos to express their anger at Mazbouh, while responding in kind against Lebanon and Lebanese women.

Mona's lawyer Imad Kamal said that ten years ago she underwent brain surgery, then it's hard for her to cope with anger. "It is in the context of the law, but the court was applying the maximum penalty".

Mona Al-Mazbouh's lawyer, Emad kamal Habib, told the court this Mona is suffering from a neurological disorder as a result of a brain disease she was diagnosed with at the age of 12, limiting her ability to properly control her actions.

In it, she claims that her initial video was not meant to be viewed by the public.
