An Egyptian court has
dismissed a lawsuit filed against Lebanese artist Qamar by Egyptian businessman
Jamal Marwan, owner of ‘Melody’ satellite channels. The court’s decision came
after Qamar appealed the first ruling against her, in which she was found guilty
and fined 5,000 Egyptian pounds.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Marwan sued Qamar for
allegedly sending him threatening messages on his cellular phone. However, an
investigation into the case proved that Qamar was in no way associated with the
alleged threatening messages.
A hearing date has
been scheduled in December for Qamar’s lawsuit against Marwan, in which she
claims Marwan is the biological father of her newborn child. At the hearing the
court will take statements from the witnesses and then release a verdict.
