The 20-year-old Christian youth was on her way to St. George Church in Sohag governate during the early morning but never returned, according to her brother during a video interview.
The family later received a phone call from a certain “Muhammad” who said that if they wanted to see the girl again they’d have to ransom her for 250,000 Egyptian pounds.
When her brother went to the authorities, the head captain told him, “So what, one Coptic girl missing? Look at how many millions of Muslims are dying in Palestine. Who would’ve thought so many millions of Muslims would die in Syria? And you’re bothering us about one girl?”
When her brother said “That’s not our issue, these are different countries, we are here to find our missing sister,” the captain, somewhat sarcastically responded, “Sure, go right ahead, look on.”
The family went to another police department but they responded in the same way—again mentioning how Muslims are dying, so how can they worry about one missing Christian girl?
According to her brother, not one person in authority did a single thing; nor did they even pretend that they would.
He concluded by saying that, word among people in the street is that there is a certain sheikh, living in a certain street, who has many kidnapped girls. The police know exactly about him, and yet no one is doing anything about it.
