One of Egypt’s best known pro-government television personalities received a six-month suspended prison sentence on Wednesday for airing private phone calls.

Ahmed Moussa was found guilty of wiretapping and invading the caller’s privacy, and ordered to pay a fine of 40,000 Egyptian Pounds ($2,222).
