Dubai, United Arab Emirates: - Turkish authorities besiege Marwa Ashour, the wife of Abd al-Rahman Yusef al-Qaradawi, and prevent her from leaving Istanbul and returning to Egypt with her children.

In a TV interview, Marwa Ashour revealed that she suffers from illegal siege by the Turkish authorities despite her proper papers.

Al-Qaradawi’s son’s wife said: “I was surprised to find a small paper with airport officials in my name and my daughters to prevent me from traveling, and I waited inside the airport for a period of more than 4 hours without interest.”

In her speech during the meeting, Marwa said that officials at the airport began asking her strange questions, such as “How did you come to the airport?” And “Where is the father of the children?” These are personal questions that they are not entitled to ask, as she put it.

Marwa revealed that the Turkish court issued a ruling preventing her three children, who are 3 girls aged 9, 5 and 4 years old, from traveling, because going to Egypt "exposes them to danger."

The wife of al-Qaradawi’s son indicated that her husband used his authority and his relations with Turkish officials to prevent her from traveling, and said that he “was threatening me that he knew people in the office of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.”

Marwa had gone out a few weeks ago in a video on her page on social media, to announce that she had asked for divorce from her husband Abdel-Rahman, due to his many women's relations and his scandals in Turkey and Qatar, appealing to the Egyptian and Turkish government and human rights organizations to release her and her daughters from her husband.

She confirmed that since her marriage to Ibn al-Qaradawi 12 years ago, she has faced many problems, and that she lives with a mysterious person about whom she does not know anything.
