Chairman of the Saudi General Entertainment Authority Turki Al-Sheikh hinted that he might resort to the Egyptian judiciary with regard to his dispute with Egypt’s Al-Ahly football club, of which he is the honorary president. Al-Sheikh — who is currently in the midst of a dispute with Al-Ahly board member Mohamed Serag Eddin — wrote on his Facebook page that, “Egypt is a country of law […] and nothing is better than the law.” Some have interpreted this as a veiled threat to resort to the judiciary in his dispute with Al-Ahly’s board of directors. Last Saturday, Al-Sheikh criticized Al-Ahly’s administration, saying, “Hussam Ashour, Abdallah al-Saeed, Ahmed Fatehy, Emad Mete’b, and Moemen Zakaria are all wrong and you are right? The current dispute comes after the reconciliation of a previous argument between the two parties that took place at the beginning of this year. At the time, Al-Sheikh withdrew the lawsuits he had filed against some of the club’s officials.
