Mother reunited with abducted daughter

A MOTHER from Wigan has been reunited with her daughter who was abducted more than two and a half years ago.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) issued a press release on Monday 21 December 2009 stating that Nadia Fawzi has been reunited with her mother Sarah.

Nadia was abducted when she was just six-years-old by her father, Fawzi Abuarghub, in May 2007 and taken to Libya.

Sarah then travelled to Libya in July of that year in an effort to bring her home, but Fawzi refused.

She then moved to Libya in November 2007 but had not seen her daughter since December of that year.

However, mother and daughter have now been reunited in Tripoli.

Details of the reunion are unknown at this stage, but it is believed to be the culmination of more than two years of behind-the-scenes diplomacy.

Detective Superintendent Phil Owen, head of GMP’s Safeguarding Vulnerable Persons Unit, said: “It has been a tortuous two years for Sarah, but this is the best Christmas present she could possibly wish for.

“We are not sure yet about the exact circumstances surrounding her reunion, but the important thing is they are together again.

“It brings to an end two years of worry, heartbreak and upheaval for Sarah and her family. They can now concentrate on becoming a complete family again.

“There has been an awful lot of hard work behind-the-scenes by the likes of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Leigh MP Andy Burnham who have worked tirelessly for this day.”
