The lawyer of the Syrian director, Muhammad Abdel Aziz, filed a lawsuit in the Syrian capital, Damascus, on Tuesday, against his colleague Samir Hussein for insulting and defamation.
Syrian lawyer Rami Al-Khair said that the public and personal right lawsuit was initiated against a colleague of his client after media statements that included accusations of “sadism.”
Lawyer Rami Al-Khair, in his capacity as the legal representative of director Muhammad Abdel Aziz, announced, through his personal account on the “Facebook” website, that he had filed a lawsuit against director Samir Hussein in light of statements he made on Syria TV and Al-Alam TV.
Al-Khair said that Hussein accused his client of being “a sadist and not a director, and that an actress in (Chicago Street) was beaten and that he did not understand him in the art of acting.”
According to the lawyer, this is considered defamation, defamation and professional abuse punishable by the Syrian Penal Code, and as a result of consultations between the lawyer and his client about the matter, they went to the Syrian judiciary.

This has happened since the first show of the work, even though it was on the encrypted osn channel.
