An Egyptian died in Saudi Arabia 11 days ago without identifying any of his family or relatives in Egypt so far, which prevents the procedures for completing his burial.
A statement by the Egyptian community in Saudi Arabia said, on social media, that a 74-year-old Egyptian expatriate died in Imam Abdul Rahman Al-Faisal Hospital in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on July 24 with the coronavirus, and his relatives could not be reached.
The statement said that the family of the Egyptian deceased has not yet been identified because he lost his personal documents including his passport, and no one has asked about him.
A member of the community, named Amir Farid, reached the victim’s official residency information, who according to the data reached is named Abdel Wahab Abdel Azim Mahmoud, 74, and holds an Egyptian passport number A17036026. He worked as a private driver, and no other information is available about him.
Farid said that if he is identified from his family in Egypt, they need to contact the Egyptian Consulate in Riyadh, or to contact him personally on mobile phone number 00966548052940.
