My ex has kidnapped our children
Lacey Plato hasn’t lived with her children for three years after their father abducted them and took them to his native country of Oman in July 2012, following the couple's split.
Despite ex-partner Usama Al Barwani serving a four-year prison sentence here in Britain, Lacey still hasn’t had 10-year-old Aishah and seven-year-old Faris returned to her, and has no idea of their whereabouts and who is caring for them. She has even been given a harassment order meaning she is likely to be arrested if she sets foot in Oman.
Lacey has now made a direct appeal to PM David Cameron to help her and has launched a petition in the hope of having her case heard in Parliament. She joins us alongside child abduction lawyer Suleema Jahangir.
