Jazan- An eight year old boy was tortured by his father when he refused to obey his father’s command. The father, a resident of Al-Sabya governate, was arrested by local authorities and has been transferred to the Jazan police center for further questioning. According to local media reports the young boy, named Ali, lives with his Yemeni mother and younger brother in the popular Sabya district and was visiting his father on the day the incident took place. His mother, who is divorced from his father, told the media that her son came running to her house screaming with pain. When she took her to Jazan General Hospital, the doctors confirmed that he had Clorox bleach burns on his head.
Ali told the media that he and his younger brother were visiting their father that day. His father who, according to Ali, was under the influence of alcohol tried to force the children to steal. The children refused to do so as they had been taught by their mother that it is a sin and impermissible in Islam to do so upon which the man blindfolded him and took off his clothes. After that he made him stand under the shower where he repeatedly hit him on the head with a broom while saying, ‘Let Allah save you now if He says stealing is impermissible.’ After that the father cut off Ali’s hair with a pair of scissors and made cuts in several places on his head after which he poured two types of chemical bleaches on his head. Ali told the officers that he lost consciousness after that and fell to the floor of the bathroom.
The father did not take the kids to the hospital but dropped them off at their mother’s place instead where the mother was shocked to see her child’s condition and immediately rushed him to the hospital. Here he was admitted to the emergency room where doctors examined him and conducted tests which confirmed the incident. Speaking to local media, the mother told them that she had seven children with her ex-husband whom he used to train to beg and steal. When they refused his orders he used to beat them. Her children are not registered under their father’s ID and the sons are not circumcised as their father refused to do so.
Maj. Gen. Abdulrahman Al-Zahrani, Jazan police spokesman, told the media that an investigation and criminal research team had been assigned to the case and the suspect had been arrested. A representative of NSHR (National Society for Human Rights) assured Ali that he will be provided justice. He said that they were waiting for the medical report and would transfer Ali to the best Saudi hospital. They would also contact the concerned authorities and take care of their poor living conditions.
