And African woman who mothered 7 children with her husband, needed the help of the Dubai Police to learn that her husband of over 12 years has another wife and child in another country.
The man had been missing for some time. Faced with an uncertain future with seven children aged between 12 and one, the woman approached the Human Rights Department of the Dubai Police to help her find him. The department’s Woman and Child Protection Division received the woman and her children and initiated a probe.
The police tracked down the man’s brother in Dubai, who told the police that the man is "in a foreign country with his other wife and child".
The man had reportedly gone there to obtain permanent residency and also possibly the country’s citizenship.
First-Lieutenant Ali Ahmed Al Shehi, Head of the Woman and Child Protection Division, said: "The man’s brother has vowed to take care of the woman and her children till her husband returns. The division is currently looking after them with the help of a charity."
Al Shehi said the department will follow up on the case to make sure the husband’s brother is taking care of the family.
