Three Egyptian ministries have been informed about the alleged abduction of four-year-old Adam Azab by his father from his Slovak mother and several Egyptian ministers are personally interested in the case, said Martin Nikodým of the 'Good Hearts Are Looking For...' initiative to the TASR newswire on Thursday, September 23. Representatives of the initiative on Thursday also met Egypt's Ambassador to Slovakia Ihab Ahmed Talaat Nasr.

“I received a promise that Mr. Ambassador will continue to be engaged in the case,” said Nikodým. He declined to reveal any details of the talks saying that this might mar the ongoing investigation in Egypt.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Adam's father, Ahmed Hassan Mohamed Ali (who is an Egyptian national) in Egypt and Adam's Slovak mother Katarína has received a court order granting her custody of the boy. Adam has only Slovak citizenship while his Egyptian father has been granted permanent residence in Slovakia.

Katarína Azab has been looking for her son in Cairo for one and a half years. She said that she has spent almost all her savings on the search which has included services of a private detective. According to the latest information delivered by the private detective, Adam attends a kindergarten. TASR wrote that the father's family has further information but keeps refusing to talk with anyone, including the police.

The father allegedly abducted his son during a holiday that the family was spending in Egypt, TASR wrote.
