The court also ruled that the boy should live with his two sisters
The UAEs top court stripped a non-Arab mother off her sons custody and ordered her to hand over the eight-year-old boy to his Arab father to be with his sisters because she cannot speak Arabic, a newspaper reported on Saturday.
The mother, who was divorced a year ago, had first lost the custody for her son at a Court of First Instance before an appeals court ruled for her.
The father then appealed the verdict with the Federal Supreme Court (FSC), the highest judicial authority in the UAE.
The FSC ruled for the father on the grounds the boy needs to speak Arabic and his mother cannot speak that language it also ruled that the boy should live with his two sisters, who live with their father, the Arabic language daily Al Khaleej said.
It said the boys sisters are aged 13 and 17 years but it did not identify the couple.
For a minute I thought this happened in the USA. The way things are going, I wouldn’t doubt it.
Arabic is so 7th century. ..
First its a surprise the mother even got custody and second its a surprise she stayed in SA knowing women have no rights there!
Barry issued a reprimand last week to Uganda for enacting a new anti-gay law. Surely he will reprimand UAE for stripping this mother of her custody rights. /s
It’s like he’s decided he’s just the president of gay america, and to heck with the rest of us.
He represents the muslims and the gays.
“Barry issued a reprimand last week to Uganda for enacting a new anti-gay law. Surely he will reprimand UAE for stripping this mother of her custody rights. /s”
Has he said anything about the woman and her two children being held in jail for being Christian?
Bloody savages. Even if they ride around in solid silver Rills Royces, they’re still just bloody savages which time simply forgot.
Rills = Rolls
Of course not. He only cares about muslims and gays.
“He represents the muslims and the gays.”
Quite a coalition! I guess it’s just lucky he doesn’t have to run for re-election anymore.
Thank goodness my mother was dead and buried before this nincompoop came along. I think her head would have exploded!
Maybe this babe learned a lesson here. Given a choice between a Muslim man or being stuck with a Western Metrosexual (what other types are left?), it’s hard to blame her choice.
But there is a price to pay.
