her for turning her back on Islam is trying to stop her from leaving.Her lawyer told Mailonline
Her brother [Al Samani Al Hadi] has launched a new petition to the family court to prove that Meriam is his sister. This would give him a legal right over her. But he does not have the authority to demand this right – it is only a father or a mother that can demand this legal status. He is doing this to prevent Meriam from travelling outside of Sudan"
