A Saudi man traveled to Abu Dhabi to help release an Indian man, whose parents work for his family in the northwestern Saudi city of Hail, from prison.
The man was jailed after getting into a fight with a colleague at his workplace. He had been jailed for around two months and his parents, Yassine and Anisa, haven’t heard from him since then.
Anisa, asked her Saudi sponsor, Ayada Khodeir al-Rammali to help her son, Ali, and Rammali accepted and traveled to Abu Dhabi to see what he can do.
“I went with my cousin to Abu Dhabi to find Ali. We did not know which prison he was at. We first asked at the Musaffah Police Station but they could not help us. So we sought information at a prison which is 30 kilometers away from Abu Dhabi but we did not find Ali there. After inquiring more, we learnt he was imprisoned at a remand prison,” Rammali told AlArabiya.net.
“We went there and we found him. He was detained following a fight with a Pakistani colleague at the contracting company where they work,” Rammali said, adding that after taking all required measures, they went to the company to speak to the Pakistani worker so he drops the charges but it turned out he was on vacation in Pakistan.
The Pakistani worker dropped the charges after they spoke with him on the phone but legal procedure in Abu Dhabi requires the presence of the second involved party, Rammali explained.
Rammali had to return to the relevant security authorities and informed them of the case so they released Ali and they will await the Pakistani worker’s return to officially record that he drops the charges.
Rammali commended security authorities and the Emirati people and said they kindly treated them and helped them when they knew they were there to release the son of a domestic worker who works for us them.
