Sabrine demands compensation
Former Egyptian actress Sabrine has filed a case in Egyptian court against the CEO of the Saudi Bank in Cairo, demanding 5 million Egyptian pounds for emotional trauma. The court will soon announce its verdict.
According to the London based daily, Dar Al Hayat, the court previously ruled that Sabrine was not guilty of fraud and embezzlement, as charged by Saudi Bank.
The court instead ordered that a bank employee undergo a handwriting exam to verify that he was the one who wrote a check in Sabrine’s name for 219 thousand Egyptian pounds to be taken from her account.
The court ruled that the bank employee had conspired with Sabrine’s ex-husband to steal her money.
Recently Sabrine made her first public appearance since her resignation from Egyptian television. The actress appeared as a guest of honor on the popular show “Al Bait Baitak” during an episode to commemorate the anniversary of the death of Egypt’s legendary singer Umm Kalthoum, who died thirty years ago.
Sabrine was invited to appear on the show after starring in the successful television drama portraying the life of Umm Kalthoum. The drama was the highlight of Sabrine’s acting career, bringing her notoriety throughout the Arab world.
