Amina Sboui, also known as Amina Tyler, has been let out of prison, according to her lawyer Souheib Bahri. She still faces charges for desecrating a cemetery in Kairouan.

“Amina is still on trial for desecrating the cemetery but the public indecency and forming an alliance to assault properties and individuals charges have been dropped.”

Bochra Bel Hadj Hmida, another one of Amina’s lawyers, told Tunisia Live that Amina’s father is on his way from Sousse, an hour and a half from Tunis, to bring her home.

Amina Tyler, an activist with the Ukranian feminist group Femen, sparked nationwide controversy when she posted pictures of herself topless on Facebook on March 11.

She was arrested on May 19 in Kairouan and her case was watched carefully by the international community.

    So this girl, promotes the lust of the flesh, the government only uses Islam to gauge morality, and they don’t want to salafist to run the country, so the Judges who some are moderate, let her go. they are probably banging her as well. Tunis needs Jesus.
