Demand the release of Hannah James and allow her to return to the UK.


As you all may know that my daughter hannah james moved to Bahrain last year and married jassim alhaddar the father of her son . Things became very difficult for her as she was suffering from domestic violence by the hands of jassim alhaddar , this became worse day by day . Hannah james finally made the decision to leave him and Bahrain with her son with support and help from her family . He made it impossible for her to leave as he burnt her passport . He then went to the police and accused her of having an affair so she is and has been in Bahrain prison for one month now and is looking at a sentence between 1-5 years on the grounds of adultery which is a very serious crime in middle eastern country's especially in a sharia Muslim culture community. Hannah is suffering being in prison she is only been given rice and water 3 times a day and on occasion they put sedatives in the rice to keep prisoners calm . She was not given or had access to toiletries as they do not provide this and she only received money that I sent to her through the embassy a couple of days ago . I have been allocated a consult through the British embassy who have been no help at all and unfortunately they have not been given permission to visit hannah to check on hannah welfare . Bahrain is a law to them selfs and there is absolutely no need for my daughter to be in prison in this country . Jassim alhaddar claims to be a good Muslim but when he was here in the U.K. He drank alcohol , smoked and ate through Ramadan during day light hours never prayed at all and was also caught having several affairs with teenage girls and he is now hiding behind his religion to in-prison hannah . Even his own family have disowned him . We are also being black mailed from jassim alhaddar for money and the return of their son
