2015-11-24 - 2:39 am

Bahrain Mirror: Aliaa Radhi, the wife of the Secretary-General of Al-Wefaq National Islamic Society Sheikh Ali Salman, said that their daughter is deprived of her right to a Bahraini citizenship. On her personal Twitter account, she said: "My daughter, Sarah, turned one-year old while she was away from her father and she is deprived of her right to a citizenship due to the imprisonment of her father."

"My daughter's situation is similar to that of many children who were denied their right to a citizenship for no fault or crime. Some of the children were denied a nationality either because the authorities revoked the citizenships of their fathers for political reasons or because their fathers are imprisoned, although acquiring a citizenship is an inherent right and they are indigenous citizens of this country," she further stated.
