Bring Hazem Home

This petition made change with 20,884 supporters!


On Wednesday 6th of March, Hazem was released from police custody. When he tried to leave with his daughter and return to Australia, he was turned back and denied exit.

He's remains stuck in Cairo.

We're now petitioning for Australian authorities to do more to assist Hazem and Saja to come home. We will not rest until Dad is back in Brisbane.

Last year, our dad was arrested and jailed in Egypt after he flew to Cairo to join us for a family holiday.

Needless to say, this devastated our family.

Egypt has been known for undertaking random arrests and throwing people in jail while they say they are doing investigations to find evidence.

Our dad has now been in Tora Prison in Cairo for a year and we are scared we might never see our dad again.

We waited for a year to see if the Egyptian authorities would either release or charge dad, but no evidence has ever been presented to justify him being in prison. And so he remains in limbo and alone in prison, thousands of kilometres away from his family.

We don’t want to wait anymore. We want the Australian authorities to do more to help us find a resolution for our father and to bring him home.

Since no evidence has been shown, we want dad released and brought back home to Australia. It is a grave perversion of justice to imprison a man without evidence or a clear reason.

Help us bring our family back together by signing this petition and demanding that the Australian government stand up for its multicultural citizens.

We love our dad and we miss him immensely, all we want to do is have him home with us again.
