Egyptian Lawyer earns 3 years imprisonment for saying women who wear ripped jeans should be raped

An Egyptian court on Saturday sentenced a lawyer who said woman wearing ripped jeans should be raped to three years in prison, a judicial source said.

The sentence against Nabih al-Wahsh was passed in absentia as the lawyer, previously released on bail, did not attend the hearing on Saturday.

Wahsh's comments during a television programme had provoked outrage and complaints to the state prosecutor, who decided to put him on trial.

The prosecution had charged him with "publicly inciting to flout the law" and "spreading with malice reports and statements meant to perturb public order... and harm the public interest".

Egyptian women have long complained of rampant sexual harassment, which the government has been working for several years to address with a tougher law.
