A 16-year-old Coptic Christian lady kidnapped on 28 Jun to be “converted to Islam, afterwards married off or sold”, was expelled and returned to her family on 30 Sep after military found her and arrested her kidnappers in a city only outward Cairo.
Marilyn was recovered from a city named 10th of Ramadan, yet she is from a encampment several hundred kilometres south, in a governorate of Minya.
Her encampment priest, Father Boutros Khalaf, told World Watch Monitor: “Recently we found out that Marilyn was hold in a place in 10th of Ramadan city…. We went to a internal military hire and they unequivocally did their best to strech her and managed to detain her kidnapper, Taha, and his brother, Gaber, and recover Marilyn. She returned behind to her family on Saturday, 30 September, after 92 days”.
Fr. Khalaf pronounced she had “not been treated well” by Taha and his friends, yet she is only “very happy to be behind with her family”.

Her abduction was partial of a array of disappearances in that Coptic girls were targeted by Islamist networks, who kidnap and force them to modify to Islam and afterwards possibly marry them off or sell them for vast amounts of money, as World Watch Monitor reported final month.
According to ‘G’, a former abductor who pronounced he actively targeted Coptic girls before he left Islam, a organisation he was partial of “rented apartments in opposite areas of Egypt to censor kidnapped Coptic girls. There, they put them underneath vigour and bluster them to modify to Islam. And once they strech a authorised age, a specifically organised Islamic deputy comes in to make a acclimatisation official, emanate a certificate and accordingly they change their ID”.
‘G’ pronounced one of a strategies they used to benefit a girls’ trust was for a kidnapper, a Muslim man, to tell a Christian lady he desired her and wanted to modify to Christianity for her.
“They start a regretful attribute until, one day, they confirm to ‘escape’ together,” ‘G’ explained. “What a girls don’t know is that they are indeed being kidnapped. Most of a time they will not marry their kidnapper, yet someone else.”
Marilyn was kidnapped in this approach as well. And nonetheless a name of her ‘boyfriend’ during a time was known, a immature male named Taha, no arrests were made. Meanwhile, videos of Marilyn, in that she pronounced she had converted to Islam, seemed online. In one, she hold a Quran; in a other, veiled, she clearly steady what was commanded to her by an earpiece.
Her mother, Hanaa Aziz Shukralla Farag, saying a video pronounced her daughter was being forced. “She was holding a Quran as if she was holding a medal,” she said. “I see she is underneath pressure.”
In their unfortunate attempts to collect their daughter, Marilyn’s family wrote letters to a Egyptian president, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, a interior minister, and many other high-ranking figures, yet it is different either these helped to secure her release.
