Shalimar's response came after Khalid Yusuf, who acquitted himself of these accusations and defended art and artists, stressed that those accusations were machinations to undermine and liquidate him.
Al-Sharbatli said her husband did not escape according to rumors in the past few days and explained that she is currently in France with her and her daughter to spend mid-year leave and finish work of his own.
Immediately after the arrest of Shaima El Haj and Mona Farouk, Khaled Youssef traveled to France, and news sites said that he fled and in view of the lifting of parliamentary immunity in preparation for investigation.
Shalimar Sharbatli considered her husband "innocent and we will sue anyone who defames him, the state has a law and we will return after the end of our holiday and there is nothing preventing us from returning to Egypt. My husband is free and a great Lord will prove that."
