Ever Given settlement the talk of the airwaves on 5 July 2021

The expected release of the Ever Given this Wednesday topped discussion on the talk shows last night: Kelma Akhira’s Lamees El Hadid tackled the widely circulated yet non-official details on the settlement agreement including the USD 540 mn compensation and a newly manufactured tugboat to be delivered to the Suez Canal Authority (watch, runtime 8:59). The agreement and adjourning the hearing on Ever Given compensation case to 11 July was covered by Ala Mas'ouleety's Ahmed Moussa (watch, runtime 36:05).

Record-setting? The compensation value marks the highest ever paid for a maritime accident, El Hadidi claimed. The official value won’t be released due to a non-disclosure agreement signed by all involved parties, she said. We have the story in full in this morning’s news well, above.

GERD also got a mention, with Ambassador Maged Abdelfattah Abdelaziz, permanent observer for the Arab League, returning to the airwaves for a second night running to give his opinion on what could happen should Ethiopia refuse to play ball. Not much apparently: Abdelaziz told Ten TV that Egypt and Sudan should return to the UN Security Council after six months and lodge more complaints that Addis Ababa isn’t cooperating (watch, runtime 4:46).
