The second highest ranking officer of the #Egyptian Embassy in #Spain was detained in #Madrid for allegedly abusing his wife and daughter but his diplomatic immunity has protected him from any further legal action. euroweeklynews.com/2019/07/30/con… via @@euroweeklynews h/t @KhaledEibid
“The victim...was made aware of her right to police protection & at first she told officers that she would press charges.According to official sources however, representatives of the #Egyptian Embassy arrived at the scene of the crime to convince her not to make any allegations.”
