Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:
Ban on singing for Egyptian singer after criticism of censorship
Egyptian singer Sherine Abdel-Wahab is no longer allowed to perform in her own country after she said that there is no freedom of expression in Egypt. At a performance in Bahrain, she said she could say what she wanted there,
This may be true for that one performance by Sherine. However, another female singer was harassed sexually by the king of Bahrain himself. A Bahraini young poetess was tortured by the king’s daughter for writing a poem critical of oppression. Bahraini doctors and nurses were tortured for trying to heal patients. Etc.
but that anyone who talks freely would end up in prison in Egypt. The singer, known as Sherine in Egypt, also presents the Egyptian [TV] version of The Voice.
The [government aligned] Egyptian Union of Musicians immediately banned singer Sherine from performing, and called on her for an interrogation. A lawyer who has often prosecuted celebrities on behalf of the government has filed charges of defaming Egypt. …
Last year, Sherine also ran into problems when she said the Nile was polluted. A six-month prison sentence was dropped on appeal. …
Since he [dictator Sisi] is in power, many politicians and artists have been imprisoned or exiled.
