TV presenter jailed for 3 years for advocating premarital sex

An Egyptian TV presenter has been sentenced to three years in jail after she discussed ways of becoming pregnant outside a conventional marriage.

According to BBC, Doaa Salah, a presenter on Al-Nahar TV, asked if her viewers had considered having sex before marriage, and also suggested a woman could marry briefly to have children before divorcing. .
.
She was charged and convicted with outraging public decency. Ms Salah was also ordered to pay 10,000 Egyptian pounds (£430) in compensation. The authorities said the ideas in the programme "threatened the fabric of Egyptian life", the EFE news agency reports. .
.
Sex before marriage is widely regarded as unacceptable in socially conservative Egypt. Ms Salah suggested that a potential husband could be paid for taking part in a short-lived marriage, and also spoke about how sperm donation is an accepted method in Western countries - but not in Egypt. .
.
She was suspended from her presenting job for three months in the aftermath of the broadcast, before legal action was taken against her. The three-year sentence follows an initial verdict which is open to an appeal.
