AL-KHOBAR — The family of an Al-Khobar girl who allegedly embraced Christianity has appointed a lawyer to represent them in the case against a Lebanese expatriate who was accused of converting her and helping her to flee the country. The man is currently in custody.
The Lebanese man is accused of sending the girl, 17-year-old Maryam, to a Christian group in Lebanon. The group then took her to Turkey, Sweden and finally to London.
The family also gave the lawyer, Humood Al-Khaldi, a power of attorney to file a lawsuit against the Saudi who helped the girl to travel to Bahrain without the family’s knowledge.
