The truth behind Parental Child Abduction in Egypt.

Received message:

In May 2009 I took my precious baby to see her father in Egypt, One week later our lives were turned upside down. My ex husband had kidnapped my baby.
For three years I have gone through Courts, Embassies, Ministers, Police and egyptian lawyers.

I was able to get my baby back after 8 months on condition I live in Egypt, but life would not be easy.
I lived with death threats, constant cases cropping up all over the country and four corrupt lawyers.

At the end for the safety of my baby i was forced to sign an agreement or lose my baby for ever. This agreement was that my baby was to live with her father and i get to have her for all school holidays, I could visit her as and when i wanted and she would get the best education possible.
Two school holidays have passed and I have not been allowed to have my baby, she was not put into school at all but a farming community nursery.


My only access to my baby is a phone call every three days that i have to fight for some times a week will go by and my ex will not answer my calls.


Having gone through death attacks, being beaten in front of authorities and constant fear of losing full contact with my baby, and eventually being forced into a contract that is meaningless.
I have decided to get back in the ring and fight again, I cannot leave my baby in the hands of a person that does not care for her well being or her education.

I will share my experiences with you, and hope that this wall can benefit parents out there in my situation.
We have to let all parents out there know, The truth behind Parental Child Abduction in Egypt.

    The reason of leaving a comment on the article “The truth behind parental child abduction in Egypt ” is that the REAL truth is missing! And by REAL truth I mean KNOWLEDGE of the Egyptian Law. In western countries we call these kind of acts: abduction, while by Egyptian Law these acts are legalized and in Islam even obligatory. So this article should be a WARNING for those foreign women, getting into an Egyptian marriage before having children from this marriage!

    Hi, I just read Leila’s story in “Take A Break” and I was upset to hear that her daughter A’ishah has been abducted and separated from her mum. What is particularly upsetting is to read that her father is not looking after her and she is being “cared for” by strangers. I really hope that mother and daughter are re-united soon and that Leila gets to give A’ishah the love and care she deserves.

    Hi, I am reading all of this with a lot of interest. I am married to an Egyptian and we have one daughter. For eight years everything was fine until he married for the second time. As he was beating his second wife very badly nearly every day our life became a hell. Especially our daughter started to suffer a lot. After he beat me also very hard and I had to be afraid to die I left him with my daughter and went to Europe. I dont want to put her in risk because with him she would suffer too much, so I am planning to leave her with my family while I go to bring my things from Egypt and finish the divorce. Can anybody tell me if there could be a problem for me when I enter Egypt?

    You really make it seem so easy along with your presentation however I in finding this topic to be actually one thing that I believe I’d by no means understand. It seems too complex and extremely huge for me. I’m having a look forward for your next put up, I’ll attempt to get the hang of it!

  • Thanks for every other fantastic article. The place else may anyone get that type of information in such an ideal approach of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I am on the search for such info.

    Hello, Iam married 5 years with Egyptian but Iam separate now because of his addiction of drugs. We have a boy 3 years old. He left from Greece and stayed in Cairo with his parents. He is asking to visit him to see our son for some days. I don’t feel safe to do it in case I cannot return back in Greece. Is there any law or contract to sign for being safe my visit in Egypt untill the divorce is finished? Please help me , Iam reading many cases that lost their child when they visit Egypt. Thank you

  • Leila says:

    There is absolutely no way you are 100% your child won’t be kidnapped or taken. Trust your instincts, if your scared under no circumstances take your child to Egypt. The father can visit his child in Greece and make sure it’s in a safe environment.
    I know a lot of people may be angered by my statement, but I know Egypt, the law and many of the parents who have lost their babies.
    Harsh but true
    Good luck xxxx

    • Maria says:

      Thank you Leila for the reply , you are right is too risky to go in Egypt. The laws in Egypt is very confused and you may be stucked in Egypt many years. God help me with having a good result in this story!! Maria
