The judicial dispute between the artist, Sherine Abdel Wahab, and the Rotana Audio and Video Company, witnessed a new development in the session held by the Cairo Economic Court, last Saturday.
A source in the Rotana company. In a special statement to “Masrawy”, he said: “The company submitted documents at the session confirming the artist’s non-compliance with the contract, in addition to evidence that she received $540,000 through bank transfers, as the presenter of the implementation of the two albums.”
And he continued, “Legal expert Hossam Lotfy (the lawyer of the artist, Sherine Abdel-Wahhab), demanded a postponement and access to the documents, and the court agreed, and set next February 18 to hold a hearing to consider the dispute.”-
Regarding the faltering of negotiations to resolve the dispute amicably, he said: “There is a difference of opinion, as the company did not accept the offer made by the artist and her lawyer to terminate the contract, in exchange for reviving 4 concerts.”--
And he continued: “The company stands by its position, and insists on the continuation of the validity of the contract signed in 2019, with the request of the artist, in her personal capacity, and as a legal representative of La Mere for artistic productions holding company, to pay the value of the penalty clause, due to her non-compliance with its terms.”
