Child rights coalition concerned about child abduction rates

Post by DJKeefy » Sun Sep 21, 2014 10:46 am

The National Coalition for the Rights of the Egyptian Child expressed, on Friday deep concern about cases of child abduction in Egypt, adding that the issue could turn into a phenomenon in Egyptian society.

Doaa Abbas, secretary-general of the coalition, said the kidnapping rates increased significantly after the 25 January revolution due to lawlessness and chaos.

The coalition followed up cases of child abduction closely, and the perpetrator in many cases turned out to be close to the children, whether relatives or acquaintances or others who deal with them and the child puts his trust in them, said Abbas.

Abbas added that the coalition received in the recent period complaints from families in different regions in Egypt, especially in Upper Egypt, about the abduction of or assault on their children.

She urged Egypt to apply the maximum penalty on perpetrators and called on the Interior Ministry to develop an urgent plan for the rescue of kidnapped children and catching perpetrators.

The article gives no indication of the reason(s) for child abduction. Intuitively, it's not the sort of thing you'd expect to be of any significance in Egypt.

Probably a better way than spawning your own sproggs and taking the chance that you will approve of said sprogg.
Just find one you like, and take it home with you :up

It has been a way of getting money's owed to the kidnapper for years here, and usually by another family member....:cool:

There was a Coptic man kidnapped in North Sinai recently. He was finally released. His daughter posted on Twitter something like, "The family paid 1.5 million and got daddy released!" What was the point of that? To say, hey all you would-be-kidnappers out there, crime pays? Or hey we're rich and we probably have more money where that came from?
