"During the follow up, they used us to bring many documents, including a copy of the passport for the person whose housing request was filed by his name; which is our father. We however, no longer have the passport, or a copy of it, since he was arrested in 2011 and sentenced to life imprisonment. His passport was confiscated," the family added.
