Sboui sparked both scandal and a wave of online support in socially conservative Tunisia for posting topless pictures of herself on Facebook. She was then arrested last month on charges on holding pepper spray after painting the word 'Femen' on a wall near a cemetery in an act of protest against hardline Islamists.
