Anguish as A’ishah kidnapped in Egypt - for second time
4:00pm Wednesday 23rd May 2012 in News   By Paula Roberts 
 Leila Sabra and daughter A’ishah 
A BOURNEMOUTH woman says she is “utterly devastated” her beautiful granddaughter has been kidnapped in Egypt for a second time.
Barbara Maas, of Throop, says her daughter Leila is going through “unimaginable pain” after five-year-old A’ishah failed to return from an access visit with her father Saber Mesbah Sabra.
A’ishah was just two when she first went missing in May 2009while on an access visit to see her father in the resort of Hurghada. Leila fought an eight-month custody battle and was finally reunited with her in January 2010.



Leila managed to secure full custody of her daughter through the Egyptian courts but was not allowed to leave Egypt because a travel ban had been placed on A’ishah.
But three months ago A’ishah failed to return from an arranged access visit with her father and the 35-year-old has been unable to receive any help from the Egyptian authorities to get her back.
She has now returned to England to put pressure on the government to help her.
Speaking to the Daily Echo, Leila said: “I cannot believe this has happened again.
“I am terrified something will happen to A’ishah as Egypt is not a safe place at the moment.

“In a way I am not surprised this has happened because we were in constant hiding and the revolution has left the whole country in chaos.
“While I got full custody of A’ishah, I was not able to leave the country – they stopped me from leaving twice.
“I want to make an appeal to David Cameron to help me.”
Barbara, who hasn’t seen A’ishah for three years due to the unrest in Egypt, said: “I cannot believe this has happened all over again. It has been such a traumatic time but Leila has come back fighting and I am completely behind her.
“She is going through hell.
“She is not just fighting for her and A’ishah she is fighting for all the other mothers who have lost their children out there.”
A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: “We are aware of the consular case in Egypt and are providing consular assistance.”

Mother’s fight for return of daughter kidnapped for second time

MISSING YOU: Leila Sabra and daughter A’ishah, five, in the most recent photograph she has of them together.

A DEVASTATED mother is calling on the government to take immediate action to reunite her with her five-year-old daughter who has been kidnapped for a second time.
Leila Saber Mesbah Sabra says she has been fighting a losing battle to get A’ishah back after she failed to return from an access visit with her father Saber Mesbah Sabra in Egypt eight months ago.
Speaking to the Echo from Egypt, Leila said: “A’ishah is a British citizen, she came to Egypt on a visitor’s visa and she is lost. Why won’t the government do anything?”



A’ishah, whose grandmother Barbara Maas lives in Bournemouth, was just two when she first went missing in May 2009 while on an access visit with her father in the resort of Hurghada. Leila fought an eight-month custody battle and was finally reunited with A’ishah in January 2010.
Leila secured full custody of her young daughter through the Egyptian courts but was unable to leave the country because a travel ban had been placed on A’ishah by her father.
But despite her court victory, A’ishah has disappeared for a second time and Leila says she is locked in a battle with the Egyptian courts who say they cannot get the police to enforce the law without a missing original custody document.

“We don’t have the old document. I have full custody of A’ishah and the British government are not doing anything. They stepped in last time and I had A’ishah in my arms within a week. Why are they not helping us now? We are being held hostage here and the British government have let us down.”
Leila’s mum Barbara says she is “devastated” A’ishah has been kidnapped again and is anxiously waiting at her Bournemouth home for news and has also called for the Government to step in. Leila’s plight will be highlighted later this month when supporters are to due to stage a peaceful protest on August 25 outside Parliament – visit Facebook page Peaceful Protest for Aishah Sabra. And an e-petition has been created calling for the British Government to intervene in A’ishah’s case.

Dodging bullets: Prestwich tug-of-love mum tells of terror during Egypt protests
A mum stuck in Egypt has described how she has had to dodge bullets as the country plunged into turmoil.
Leila Sabra told how Cairo had descended into ‘anarchy’ following seven days of protests.
Tens of thousands of people have taken to the streets of the capital – defying a curfew and calling for a general strike. They are demanding President Hosni Mubarak stands down after three decades in power.
Leila, from Whitefield, Bury, is stuck in Cairo with her three-year-old daughter A’ishah as she tries to bring the toddler home following a bitter custody battle with her ex-husband.
Click on the video below to hear our interview with Leila in Cairo …
The 33-year-old market researcher said that while the media spotlight had been on Tahrir Square, ‘good people’ in the rest of Cairo had been left terrified by the uprising.
“It’s 100 per cent anarchy,” she added. “Things are crazy here. It’s horrible. Good people are suffering because of this.
“I’m terrified for A’ishah. We shouldn’t even be here, stuck in the middle of a civil war.”
Leila described how, three nights ago, she was forced to dive for cover after military personnel fired warning shots into the air and past her balcony.
She said: “Three bullets zoomed past our faces. I literally saw them, they were like shooting stars.”
Leila also told how gangs of armed looters had been left to roam the streets because of the lack of a police presence.
Neighbourhood watch groups armed with clubs and machetes had to keep the peace in many districts. Banks, schools and the stock market in Cairo have closed while there has been a shutdown of the internet.
Leila said shops were running out of food, causing people to fight over whatever was left, and added she thought the death toll was far higher than the 100 that had been reported.
She has been forced to remain in Egypt because her ex-husband continues to apply for travel bans to stop A’ishah returning home. She claims her ex-husband abducted A’ishah and took her to Egypt last year.
The continuing legal battles have left Leila practically penniless. After living with A’ishah in a flat in Cairo, Leila has moved into the house of a friend’s mother because she is so frightened by the upheaval.
She said: “I’m just praying the British government will do something and evacuate us.
“There does need to be a change in Egypt. People have the right to choose their government. I believe in peaceful protest but maybe this is the way to get change.”

A mum is fighting to get her five-year-old daughter back – after she was taken by her father for the SECOND time.
Leila Sabra, from Whitefield, has been living in Cairo since being awarded custody of A’ishah by the Egyptian courts in 2009.
But she says the girl’s Egyptian father Saber Mesbah Sabra has refused to return her after an access visit almost three months ago.
After struggling to get help from the police and courts in Egypt, which she says are in chaos following the revolution, Leila has returned to Greater Manchester to seek help from the government.
A’ishah is believed to be at her father’s home in the mountain village of Khafr-el-Sheikh.
She said: “I cannot believe this has happened again, I am terrified something will happen to A’ishah as Egypt is not a safe place at the moment.
“Although I won custody the courts refused to let us leave Egypt and I had to accept custody visits, but since the revolution the whole country has been in chaos.
“Initially my ex-husband refused to return A’ishah but I spoke to her on the phone every day and I visited her once.
“She was unhappy and crying for me to take her home but he would not let me. I can’t bear to be apart from her like this.”
A’ishah was first taken by her father in 2009.
Leila’s eight-month battle to get her daughter back, which was supported by Coronation Street stars, her MP Ivan Lewis and the Foreign Office, ended when she won custody in the courts.
She then made a life in Cairo, where A’ishah attended a British school. Leila, a market researcher, struggled to make ends meet because under Egyptian law she is not allowed to work there. But she has also not been allowed to leave the country as Saber had to have access to his daughter under the custody ruling.
Leila, 35, met her former husband when she went to Egypt on holiday in November 2005.
They kept in contact when she returned home and married in Egypt the following July.
Leila became pregnant and suffered medical complications, so returned to Whitefield and A’ishah was born at St Mary’s Hospital, in Manchester.
MP Ivan Lewis said: “It is absolutely tragic to hear that this situation is back to square one.
“We need to do everything possible to intervene with the Egyptian authorities to ensure A’ishah’s safe return to her mother as soon as possible.”
A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: “We are aware of a consular case in Egypt and are providing consular assistance.”
