Yemeni authorities in Sana’a international airport detained Yemeni girl Fadak Ali Al-Harazi and her mother of Iraqi nationality to enter Yemen. Although coming to visit her dad, Fadak was returned with her mother on the same flight they came in.
The girl’s father Sheikh Ali Mohammed Al-Harazi condemned the arbitrary and unjustified procedures. He stated that security authorities kept investigating the girl and her mother for a long time before preventing them of entering Yemeni lands despite having permission for the visit. “Dealing in the provocative way confirms that methods of former regime were not changed despite the revolution,” he noted. Sheikh Al-Harazi demanded President Hadi and government to pay attention to these irresponsible measures and arrest officers who prevented his daughter and wife of entering Yemen. He also demanded compensation for the harm they suffered especially for the girl who went into a depression state.
