‘Fake’ Saudi left his children stateless

A Saudi woman has called for assistance after she discovered that her husband was not a Saudi national and left her, resulting in her children becoming stateless.

Women are not allowed to pass on citizenship in Saudi Arabia.

Umm Khalid said that she had married her husband after he proposed through a friend of the family. Her mother and brother approved the marriage.

However, when she was about to deliver her first baby, he told her that she should not go to a hospital or a clinic and forced her to deliver at her parents’ house.

He did the same with the second baby, the mother added.
