The Administrative Court of the State Council in Egypt will hear a lawsuit in July demanding the cancellation of actor Mohamed Ramadan’s membership at the Actors’ Syndicate and preventing him from acting.
According to the lawsuit, the syndicate “has always represented the soft power of the Egyptian state and reflected the moral values and principles on which the Egyptians grew up, but in the recent period a group of actors appeared, headed by Mohamed Ramadan, who play roles that incite bullying and violence and spread deviating concepts…among young people.”
Earlier in April, Egyptian media host Amr Adib announced filing four reports against Ramadan with the Public Prosecution, accusing him of slander after the actor/singer uploaded various videos online mocking Adib.
On April 7, the Cairo Economic Court awarded pilot Ashraf Aboul Yousr with LE six million in his lawsuit against Ramadan, wherein Aboul Yousr demand LE25 million in damages.
The lawyer representing Aboul Yousr, Magdy Helmy, stated that his client suffered material and moral damages after Ramadan published a picture on social media in a plane’s cockpit in October 2019.
