Court convicts Nancy Ajram’s thieves
An Egyptian court has sentenced a Russian and a Georgian tourist to two years in jail after they were found guilty of robbing Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram. The two were caught attempting to leave Sharm El Sheikh Airport with their bags filled with jewelry stolen from the singer.
Nancy had reported that her jewelery, money, and credit cards were stolen from her hotel room in Sharm El Sheikh, valuing US$115,000.
The thieves used Nancy’s credit cards to purchase large amounts of expensive jewelry, which led to their capture.
On a different note, sources have revealed that Nancy was nominated to star in a new film about the Hezollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, but the Egyptian Censorship Committee did not approve the film.
The film depicts an attempt by Israel Mosad agents in Lebanon to kidnap and assassinate Nasrallah. The committee claimed the film would increase tension between Israel and Egypt, and increase hatred in Egyptian streets, counter to Egyptian national security interests.
The film was presented by Mohammad Al Mahlawi and was to star Hassan Yousif and Ahmad Izz. Mohammad revealed that he intends on presenting his idea to a number of Arabic satellite television channels in hope that one will agree to fund and screen the film.
Nancy refused to leave her country while Israel was bombarding Lebanon, canceling performances in London and Paris alongside UAE singer Hussein Al Jasmy. She has rescheduled both concerts and the proceeds will go directly to assist Lebanese citizens affected by the war.
