Egyptian actress Rania Youssef poses on the red carpet at the closing ceremony of the 40th edition of the Cairo International Film Festival (CIFF) at the Cairo Opera House in the Egyptian capital on November 29, 2018. Youssef is to face trial in January 2019 for appearing at the closing ceremony of the Cairo International Film Festival wearing a revealing black lacy dress over a tight black body with her legs showing underneath, a judicial source said on December 1. This prompted two lawyers to lodge a suit against her accusing the actress of ‘inciting debauchery,’ a charge that could land her in jail for up to five years if she is convicted.
