CAIRO – 18 December 2017: As a part of Egypt’s efforts to offer Egyptian citizens abroad absolute care and protection, to preserve their rights, the Egyptian consulates in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and Italy followed up on the stabbing of an Egyptian migrant and detention of two children.

Concerning an Egyptian citizen who was stabbed on Saturday in Riyadh, the Egyptian Embassy in Riyadh contacted the hospital where the man received treatment to follow up on his case. Egyptian Embassy officials visited the man on Sunday to check on his condition.

Ali El Sayed Ali Ahmed was attacked by four young people of different nationalities, who stabbed him repeatedly with knives. The stabbing occurred after he fought with the group of young people in defense of a colleague, who had been assaulted by the group.

Egyptian consulate authorities followed up with the investigations of this incident with Saudi officials to arrest the defendants.

A Foreign Relations Committee led by Tareq Radwan called on the Egyptian Embassy in Italy to interfere in protecting two children who are detained at child centers in Italy.

The two children have a Muslim father and their mother later converted to Islam. According to the committee, their religion should become Islam, but child centers in Italy do not allow children to change their religions, urging the Egyptian Embassy to interfere.

The committee said that a case should be filed to bring these children to Egypt, adding that it will contact the Egyptian Consul in Rome, Sherif El Gamal to take the necessary legal measures and to appoint a lawyer for the case.

Previously, the Egyptian Consulate in Jeddah followed up on the murder of Egyptian citizen Ahmed El-Hady Abdou Soliman who died on April 20 in Saudi Arabia, according to the Consul General of Egypt to Saudi Arabia.

The incident took place in November when an Egyptian expat, Wahid Mahmoud Refaie was severely beaten by a Kuwaiti man. Egyptian Minister of Immigration and Egyptian Expatriate Affairs, Nabila Makram flew to visit the victim.
