People since yesterday have been sharing a video on all social media platforms showing how an Egyptian was treated violently by Romanian security guards on board and asking everyone to share the video as well to make it go viral.
Hassan Salamah was attacked by the Romanian security while boarding from Bucharest, the capital city of Romania to Cairo. The attack caused his wife to go into a diabetic coma and caused panic to the entire flight including young kids.
The video shows how the Romanian cops kept on pushing Salamah and trying to drag him out of the plane, which they eventually did to him and his family in addition to canceling their flight.
The video surely stirred up Egyptians’ anger on social media, accusing Romanian security forces of racism. In the video, you can hear how they were trying to stop the woman from shooting the video, and how she stood her ground and said it is her right to take a video.
In an interview with Amr Adeeb, Salamah explained the reason the quarrel broke out saying that the flight attendant asked his Moroccan wife to change seats because she was seated in the emergency row. He also said that the flight attendant told his wife that the person seated in the emergency row should be able to speak English.
The ironic thing that caused people on the plane to laugh about it, making the flight attendant feel humiliated. After a while and after the Egyptian family did switch seats, even though the previous seats were the ones given to them in the first place, security forces came to escort them out.
The husband also explained that his wife refused to remove her bag as it contained important personal belongings including their passports and money.
The flight passengers expressed their shock and disbelief of the inhumane treatment that they have witnessed against the Egyptian national, which even caused a person to faint and children to broke in hysteric screams, while another passenger was asking all travelers to get off the plane.
As soon as videos of that event were published, Egyptian and Romanian officials took action immediately.
The Egyptian counsel in Bucharest rushed to the airport, but he found that the Egyptian passenger had boarded a Turkish airliner bound to Sharm El Sheikh then to Cairo.
Ambassador Abdel Maqsoud said that Egyptian and Moroccan authorities are following with the Romanian authorities the investigations that were launched into the incident.
