Katarina Azab hasn't seen or heard from her little Adam since 18th November 2008. On that day, her son was abducted by his Egyptian father, Ahmed Hassan Azab. Please read this sad story and help reunite Adam with his suffering mother Katarina.
For almost 2 years, Katarina and Ahmed Hassan worked and lived together in Egypt. Katarina was working as a tour operator for a Slovak travel agency. Adam's father refused that Adam be born in Egypt, so Katarina moved to her sister in the UK where Adam was born.
When Adam was almost one year old, his father decided to come to Europe. Katarina helped him and supported him to get a visa to live as a family. After 2 years, he asked his wife to spend a holiday in Egypt so that he could show Adam to his relatives. On the last day before departure back to Europe, he kidnapped Adam from his mother. A short while after Adam was taken, Katarina was given custody by the Egyptian court. Another court found Ahmed guilty for not respecting this court decision. Despite the High Prosecutor of Family writing a letter to the Egyptian Minister of Interior, Katarina is still without her son.
Since the European marriage of Katarina and Ahmed is not recognised in Egypt, and since Adam was born in the UK and had never lived in Egypt before, higher Egyptian officials should reunite Katarina with Adam.
Katarina is working really hard; she attends many courts, offices, organisations, media and personally searching to get Adam back.
It is a possibility that the father has left Adam in the care of relatives while he has disappeared. The thought of this is very painful to Katarina, which is why she has begun a private investigation.
Since the abduction, Katarina has not left Egypt and has not been given a work permit. Therefore, her financial situation is very difficult.
This petition, a letter from the Slovak President and a supporting letter from Reunite Organisation in the UK, will all be sent to the Egyptian President.
It is unimaginable the pain caused by the separation of a mother from her child. So please support Katarina and sign this petition to help reunite them and bring light back into their lives.
