The family of Chloe Collins are in utter shock and despair after her detainment and arrest in Oman in the Middle East where she had been working in the hospitality industry.

The family believe that Chloe has been wrongfully detained.  

Details of the case are unclear at this juncture. As Chloe currently has no legal representation in Oman, the family have no access to the formal charges and police dockets. What could be ascertained, is that Chloe’s brother, diagnosed with Schizophrenia and currently receiving treatment in a mental institution is SA, is suspected of the potential involvement in a crime in the country before returning to South Africa. He has not been charged with any crime. Oman authorities arrested Chloe in the wake of investigations and are now demanding his return in exchange for her.

Chloe has been held in police custody since 9 May 2019. She has been interrogated in a foreign language without legal representation for many hours.  The right to a fair trial and access to justice are not assured.

Her family is frantic with worry and feelings of helplessness and despair. The family does not have the means to pay for a lawyer in Oman.

Even with legal assistance, we believe without diplomatic/government intervention, Chloe may be detained for a very long time.

Please sign and share this petition. We implore the South African government to intervene and help #FreeChloe
