Young Egyptian actor Ahmad Fishawi, who is accused of getting married to Hind Hamdi Hinawi under civil law, is confronted with Hind’s father who revealed that he plans on appealing to the police to reopen the file and repeat the investigation with his daughter. Hind’s father claims that he has new documents and witnesses that will change the course of the case dramatically.
The father made it clear that he has romantic letters with Ahmad's hand writing to his daughter, which contradicts what Ahmad’s insistence that nothing is between them. He also referred that there were some eyewitnesses to the negotiations between the two parties regarding a secret wedding, reported the London based Elaph.
According to Gomhuria daily newspaper, Fadia Fahmi, a friend of Hinawi's family who works as an office manager atEgypt Air in Frankfurt came back to Cairo to testify in the case. According to Fadia, she had known about the secret marriage between Ahmad and Hind because Hind's mother told her about the whole issue and asked her to mediate between the two parties.
Fadia assured that she called Ahmad and talked to him about the issue, adding that he confirmed to her that he is married to Hind and that he is the father of her baby. Nevertheless, he had been under pressure by his family and friends not to marry her because that will hurt his image.
Hind's father disclosed earlier that he is not honored if Ahmad married his daughter; however he is suing him to prove the fatherhood of the baby. Young Ahmad denied getting married to Hind under civil law, a marriage that is not officially registered, and asserted that he had never asked to marry her. Hind, décor designer, reported to the police that Fishawi had married her and accused him of asking her to abort the child after he discovered that she was pregnant.
Fishawi stressed in the statement he gave at the police station that charges against him are not true, asserting that he is a religious person, and would never think of doing anything against the teachings of Islam.
Hind insisted on her complaint assuring the police that young Fishawi was responsible of her five-month pregnancy and demanded that tests on DNA should be done to prove the biological father of the child.
The story began when both Fishawi and Hind were working together on a comedy drama where they clicked and one thing led to another and he asked her to marry him according to piece of paper without going public about it. Four weeks after filming the drama ended, Fishawi told Hind that everything between them is over and described their relationship as a mere whim.
During their relationship, they used to meet at Ahmad's apartment in Cairo or in his father's apartment in Dukki district. After Hind told Fishawi that she was pregnant he offered to marry her on one condition that she gets rid of the baby. Hind refused to go through an abortion and Fishawi managed to deceive her and took the piece of paper that proves her marriage to him. Hind insisted that Fishawi's parents, actor Farouq Fishawi and actress Sumaia Al Ulfi were aware of their son's marriage to her. –Albawaba.com
