Woman loses custody of her two children because she is a "witch" who "practices sorcery". Court places the children in her ex-husbands care[edit]

The Personal Status Section of the Appeals Court nullified a woman’s right to the custody of her two children and ordered the ex-husband must take over custody.

Counselor of the ex-husband Attorney Mahdi Al-Rashidi urged the court to transfer the children’s custody to their father because their mother practices sorcery, and the man is not at ease with the children being in her care.

Evidence against the woman became strong when sorcery related materials were found in her possession, and she confessed those materials rescued her from problems. Also, the woman is said to be spending most part of the day outside and usually comes home late at night. For this reason, she was deemed unfit to take care of the children.

The lawyer reiterated that a lower court had previously granted his client the right to divorce, and the children’s paternal grandmother would take care of them.
