Dad wins custody: The Ahmadi Personal Status Court recently ruled in favor of the father and gave him custody of the children after overturning earlier decision. This happened after the father proved to the court that his former wife who was initially given custody of the children was seen wearing bikini on one of the beaches in a Western country. The plaintiff’s attorney Yousuf Hussein pleaded with the court to revoke the custody order of the children from their mother and put the children under the care of the father. The attorney also submitted pictures to the court showing the defendant wearing bikini. She was also accompanied by a man, who is not her relative, thus proving to the court that the care of children cannot be left in the hands of an irresponsible person.
