In a recent statement, the NCW cited a memorandum sent last week to President Mohamed Morsi by the International Union for Egyptian Women (IUEW), calling for immediate intervention to stop such marriages.
The IUEW stated that Syrian women are sold to Egyptian men for only LE500 per wife, adding that such marriages abound in 6th October City, 10th Ramadan City and New Cairo, as well as in Alexandria, Al-Daqahliya and Al-Gharbiya governorates.
In the space of one year, 12,000 of these 'marriages' have taken place, according to the IUEW.
