The Family Court obliged a divorced woman to pay compensation worth KD 5,001 to her former husband for denying him the right to see his children. Representing the man was Lawyer Mubarak Al Khashab who sued the woman on behalf of his client as a verdict had been issued to allow his client to see his children. Lawyer Al-Khashab presented documents that revealed about a number of instances when his client was denied the right to see his children. He explained that Article 196 of law No 51/1984 of personal status code guarantees the right of parents, as well as grandparents, to see their children, which cannot be denied by those with the custody of the children.
