Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled, First Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Interior, and Acting Minister of Defense, directed not to renew the residency of an Egyptian family and their six children and to grant them a temporary residency.
After the police submitted a report to Al-Khaled indicating the couple was in a family dispute, the father stayed with a friend as a consequence of this conflict, and the mother left the apartment without any food for her children, which forced the two older children to take turns taking care of their infant sister, who was less than 3 months old.
A security source reported that the daughter called the operations room of the Ministry of the Interior and reported that her parents left her and her siblings alone for two days without food.
Major General Abdullah Al-Rajeeb, the assistant undersecretary of the Ministry of Interior for Public Security Affairs, was immediately notified, and he instructed that the six children be cared for, taken to the police station, and fed.
A member of the community police was notified, and the husband was summoned, and he explained that he had been laid off and was jobless and experiencing financial difficulty, and as a result, disputes occurred with his wife, forcing him to leave the house four months ago and move in with a friend. He claims he is responsible for paying his children's tuition fees and the bus that transports them back and forth from school. As for the wife, she said that she was no longer able to take care of the children and that she had nothing to spend on them, and she went to stay with her friend.
Sheikh Talal Al-Khalid ordered that the whole family be granted temporary residence following which they will be deported to their country after the case of negligence was filed against the parents.
It is noteworthy to mention that the husband was born in 1981 and the wife in 1985. Four of their six children were born in 2011, 2016, 2019 and 2023, and the other two were born in 2009 and 2020.
