Save Our Christian daughters from the Islamic extremists
The American Coptic Assembly calls for an immediate release of Mona Jeccob Keriaco, a Catholic Christian, from the custody of the Islamic fundamental groups. Mona Keriaco was abducted by Muslim extremists on August 17 2006. Ms. Keriaco is 23 years old who works as a teacher in a school in the Governorate of Fayom, North West of Cairo, Egypt. After two weeks of her abduction, she appeared with Kalid Taha Omaran, 40 years old, one of the members of Al Jama El Slamia (Muslim extremist group) in the governorate of Fayoum. Kalid Omaran claimed that he has married Mona Kerico (an Aourfy marriage) secretly without her family approval. In an interview at the Egyptian TV that took place on September 1, 2006, Mona Kerico appeared completely drugged and was coerced to say that she is currently married to Omarran. Subsequent to this TV Interview, Mona Keriaco’s family members along with members of clergy at the Catholic Church requested from the Egyptian police to meet her. Their numerous requests were denied by Officer Ahmed abd El twaab, the head of the criminal investigation unit in the Governorate of Fayoum. Officer Abd El Twaab even threatened to detain Ms. Keriaco’s family if they kept requesting to meet their abducted daughter and ask about the reason behind her disappearance.
According to Mona’s sister, Mona Kericao was engaged to a
Christian Youngman and was supposed to get married on September 7th.
Accordingly, The Assembly is calling for an immediate investigation about this
case of abduction and Officer Abd El twaab’s unfair treatment to Mona Keriaco’s
Also, The Assembly is asking all the human rights organizations to force the Egyptian government to take the responsibility to return the abducted girl to her family.
