YEKATERINBURG, November 3 (Itar-Tass) —— Only the diplomacy can decide on the fate of a five-year-old girl from the town of Lesnoy in the Sverdlovsk Region, Alina Pavlova, children’s ombudsman in the Sverdlovsk Region Igor Morokov told a press conference at the regional news centre TASS-Ural here on Thursday.
“The children’s human rights commissioners discussed the fate of the child at an all-Russian congress. The negotiations continue with the father-in-law of the girl that kidnapped the latter from the hospital in Egypt, where the child was brought last September,” Morokov said. “The man permits the girl to speak only by phone with her mother, who is a resident of the Sverdlovsk Region. The father-in-law does not permit any other contacts with the girl. Alina Pavlova can be brought back to Russia only through diplomatic negotiations,” Morokov said.
In 2009 Russian mother of the girl Yekaterina Pavlova got married with an Egyptian citizen Nabil Mohammed and resettled to Hurghada. However, the spouse started beating the woman and her child. Last September the girl was hospitalized with numerous injuries after the beating in Hurghada, where she was kidnapped in late September.
Trying to bring the daughter back the woman turned to the Egyptian police and the Russian embassy many times, but all was in vain so far. Yekaterina Pavlova cannot leave Egypt, because she delivered the second child, who is a citizen of this country.
The children’s ombudsman in the Sverdlovsk Region sent an appeal in the Russian Foreign Ministry calling for more intensive efforts of the diplomats to protect the rights and interests of Alina Pavlova. Russia and Egypt concluded an agreement for mutual legal assistance and legal relations in civil, commercial and family affairs.
The regional children’s ombudsman also sent an address to Russian children’s ombudsman Pavel Astakhov.
