Saudi businessman stabbed in Cairo – report

Mohammed Al-Shaarawi, chairman of a pilgrims services company, was allegedly attacked by an Egyptian businessman

A Saudi businessman was injured after he was stabbed in his shoulder last week in Egyptian capital Cairo, local daily Saudi Gazette reported.

Mohammed Al-Shaarawi, chairman of a pilgrims services company, was allegedly attacked by an Egyptian businessman and two of his associates last Sunday in his apartment.

Al-Shaarawi,in his 50s, is currently recovering at a hospital in Cairo, the report claimed.

The victim’s daughter told the newspaper that her father was in Cairo to recover around SAR1m from the Egyptian businessman, who owed the amount since 2013.

Since the man had avoided paying the amount, Al-Shaarawi had sued him and won the case.

“The court, while ruling in my father’s favour, told the Egyptian to pay up and settle the issue,” she said.

Last Sunday, soon after he entered his apartment, two women knocked on the door and claimed that they needed his help.

After opening the door, Al-Shaarawi was accosted by the Egyptian and the women, who allegedly “pushed him, kicked him, and tied him up after stabbing him”, his daughter told Saudi Gazette.

The Egyptian also forced Al-Shaarawi to sign blank cheques and bills before leaving him in a “pool of blood”.

“The wound in his shoulder is deep. My father has been psychologically affected after the incident,” his daughter said.

The Saudi Embassy in Cairo is investigating the case, she added.
