It is emphasized that N.M.G.G.  lived quite wealtgt in Egypt, and if there were not any forced circumstances, he would not leave his country. The lawyer presented to the court all the evidences that really confirmed the persecution of Christians in Egypt and etc.

The beneficiary's case was initially heard in 2015-2017. The claim was partially satisfied and the defendant - the Ministry of Home Affairs was ordered to re-examine N.M.G.G.'s case, however, in vain, the ministry refused to grant asylum again.
