CAIRO – 6 February 2018: The Giza prosecution ordered the release of Russian belly dancer Eicatrina Andreeva, known as Gawhara, on LE 5,000 bail and was suspended from practicing dancing until all necessary procedures are completed.
The 31-year-old Russian was arrested early Tuesday and then referred to investigations over inciting debauchery and arousing sexual instincts of young people, as she appeared “semi-naked” in a viral, provocative dancing video.
Accompanied by a translator during her investigations, Gawhara added that she was wearing a dancing suit that is no different than those donned by many belly dancers in Egypt.
According to the Giza prosecution’s preliminary reports, Gawhara was also arrested over not having a work permit, to which she responded that she is fond of belly dancing and got to work at some night club in Giza for money.
The General Directorate of the Police of Tourism and Antiquities stated that Gawhara was wearing a non-standard dancing outfit and was featured in a viral video flaunting her body and pointing to private parts of her body in a racy manner, according to the findings of the preliminary investigations previously announced by the prosecution.
