Selangor Students being brought back from Egypt in stages


SHAH ALAM, 24 August: The Selangor Government is trying to bring back the people of this state who are in Egypt in stages in accordance with needs and flights set.

Chief Minister, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said that the effort is being undertaken in collaboration with the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Immigration Department to ensure that all transactions are conducted in an orderly fashion and smoothly.

He said that the latest statistics indicate that there are over 1,300 Selangorians studying in Egypt and 40 have been reported to have been deported.

It will surely be completed in one to two months, he said, as some of the students do not want to return home because they are having examinations.

“We have an officer in charge of the students there and they will be the ones who will monitor the situation and convey information to the State Government,” he said.
He said this at a press conference after the launch of the Selangor Stage Premier Gotong Royong (mutual cooperation) Programme here this morning.

Egypt has been in turmoil since President Mohamed Morsi, who was democratically elected last year, was overthrown by the military regime on July 3, 2013.

According to unofficial reports, thousands of Morsi’s supporters were killed in the violence masterminded by the regime.
