An Egyptian lawyer who said it was a man’s “national duty” to sexually assault women in ripped jeans has been sentenced to three years in jail.

Axar.az reports citing Sputnik.

During a television program, Nabih al-Wahsh made a controversial statement that women, wearing tight or ripped pants, deserved to be harassed, which immediately sparked public outrage. Egypt’s National Council for Women filed a complaint against the TV channel and al-Wahsh himself, denouncing his behavior “explicitly promoting rape.”

Following tons of complaints to the state prosecutor, al-Wahsh was charged and sentenced in absentia: he didn’t show up after being released on bail.

Last year al-Wahsh appeared on another television program, where he took off his shoe and hit an Australian imam on the head over a heated debate on whether wearing hijab should be voluntary.
