Claims of national children born abroad studied- FINALLY!

Claims of national children born abroad studied (link)

The committee assigned to identify UAE nationals born abroad has left the country starting an Asian tour to meet 48 cases and meet nationals' children in India, Pakistan, Philippines, and Indonesia.

The new tour is being made upon directives by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of the State and is being followed up by Lt.General Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior.

The committee which is chaired by Assistant Undersecretary for Naturalization, Residency and Ports Affairs Major General Nasser Al Awadi Al Menhali and is made up of members from the Interior Ministry, seeks to locate children with Emirati fathers and foreign mothers who wish to reunite with their families.

They should consider the USA a good place to start as well considering the amount of Gulf students there in the 80's and 90's. Finally after so many decades the children that were left behind will be found. I wonder if the other GCC countries will follow this taboo subject. Sheikh Khalifa, you are a great man!

  2. I wanted to write a book on this subject but I don't know how to find the people affected by this situation. Sorry to hear about that I know other people in the same situation but life goes on, I just wish I knew how someone could forget about their child.

  3. My father came to the US I assume in the very late 70s as I was born in 1980. He is said to be from Saudi Arabia. My mother died and I was told he died as well upon me being adopted. I don't know if him being deceased is true as I can not find any of my family from Saudi Arabia. I have contacted the Saudi Embassy to help locate my family and was told to sign a paternity affidavit which I did and no reply. I wonder now after researching if I was just simply left behind.
