Egyptian rapper and actor Mohamed Ramadan, blocked from work after the publication in November of photos of him posing with Israeli celebrities, is back on the job.
The actor publishes a picture on his Facebook page of himself on the set of a series titled “Musa,” slated to air during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, later this year.
An Egyptian court on Saturday dismissed a case against Ramadan that was aimed at preventing him from acting and singing in Egypt. The syndicate of Egyptian artists in December lifted a ban imposed on the rapper after suspending his membership in November. And the union of journalists also decided to rescind a decision to boycott all news linked to Ramadan due to the controversial photos.
In November, Israeli official Arab-language social media accounts posted two undated photos of Ramadan alongside singer Omer Adam and footballer Dia Saba, both Israeli citizens, on a rooftop in Dubai.
