Battle for daughter goes to Downing St
A MOTHER desperate to be reunited with her missing six-year-old daughter will be taking her fight to Downing Street tomorrow.
Leila Saber Mesbah Sabra is calling on the government to get involved in her two-and-a-half-year battle to find A’ishah, who was taken for a second time while on an access visit with her father in Egypt.
She has linked up with Abducted Angels and they will be taking a petition calling for action in A’ishah’s case – for the government to be more proactive in all child abduction cases and for tighter laws to be made on passports – to No 10 on August 27.
To highlight the plight, Sean Felton, founder of Abducted Angels is walking the petition, already signed by more than 6,000 people, 175 miles from Cannock to London.
Leila said: “I am calling for the British government to get involved. I know one phone call from the government will get A’ishah back.
“I have full custody of A’ishah. I was awarded this by the Egyptian authorities when her father took her away the first time.
My human rights are being breached. The Egyptian authorities are not following their own laws.
“A’ishah was born in Britain and lived here until her father took her.”
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 Saber Mesbah Sabra 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 but was unable to leave the country because a travel ban had been placed on A’ishah by her father.
She was then taken a second time and Leila has not seen her daughter for two and a half years.
