Minster of Immigration and Egyptian Expatriates Affairs Nabila Makram on Tuesday phoned the Ambassador of Egypt to Jordan Sherif Kamel to investigate the assault of an Egyptian expatriate in Jordan.
The incident dates back to September, when footage posted on social media captured an argument between an Egyptian national and a Jordanian neighbor which escalated into a physical altercation.
The neighbor’s family intervened and managed to calm the situation, according to Kamel. He added that his embassy has followed up with the Egyptian victim and assigned a lawyer to defend his rights at the Jordanian court.
Makram assured she has been following the incident since the footage had been uploaded online, and is working with Jordanian authorities in the investigations.
She thanked the embassy for its quick response in handling the incident.
