On 4 November 2015, he killed the 39-year-old mother of his children with a knife. The mother had a total of six children, of which the youngest ones were at home at the time the offence was committed.

After committing the offence, Atiya fled abroad, and was sentenced in default in the Netherlands. In addition to this offence, Atiya was convicted without appeal for the abduction of two of his children to Libya. For this offence, he still has to serve two years of imprisonment.

It is suspected that Atiya is in Libya, but he could also be elsewhere, perhaps under a different name.
