The family of the late Egyptian actress, the Cinderella of Arab entertainment have filed a motion in a court of law in Egypt to formally re-oepn investigation in the tragic death of Soad Hosny who died as a result from a Balcony incident in her London Apartment. Did she commit suicide as some suggest or did someone push her to hear death?
For the longest time, the rumors and circumstances of her death have been the source of many theories. The family is stating that high rank officers in the Mubarak regime stand behind Soad's death and want a serious inquiry into the matter. It appears that Ms. Hosny kept a Diary in which she kept a record of all accounts in her life.
Some parties in power did not like the ideas of this personal journal being made public as Soad kept it close to her. The officials who are linked to the crime according to the family are officials in the government and the State TV. The lawyer who filed the motion on behalf of the actress's family is Brlinty Sekhon who said that she has strong evidence that will surprise many.
