A father who abducted his young children and took them to live with his parents in Oman was today jailed for one year after failing to return them five years later. ‘Shameless liar’ Usama Al Barwani from Portsmouth repeatedly defied court orders to return his children, now aged nine and 12, to Britain from the Middle East.
Today, Mrs. Justice Theis ruled that Al Barwani had committed ‘serious’ and deliberate breaches of orders relating to the return of his children to England. She rejected his claim that it was not within his power to return the children as he was ‘controlled by his own father in relation to that’.
Al Barwani has already served a term in prison after being convicted of abduction. His latest prison sentence follows a successful application by Lacey Plato, his ex-wife, at the High Court for Al Barwani, who is also in his 30s, to be committed to prison for contempt.
