An Egyptian martial arts instructor embroiled in a sex scandal has been sentenced to two years prison with hard labor for promoting vice after having sexual intercourse with women at a health club in the country’s Nile Delta.

The court in El-Mahalla El-Kubra found Abdel Fattah al-Saidi guilty of promoting public disorder, sexual intercourse with a number of women at a rented gym, filming women in compromising situations without their knowledge as well publicizing the fact.

Saidi was reportedly a Karate instructor and his case was widely publicized in Egyptian media.
