Abu Baker Mehdi Fathi v. Ablaa Gissm Al-Saeed: National Supreme Court, 2016

Member State

This case concerns the right to custody over a 2-year-old girl. The trial court gives custody of the child to the father, but the Appeal Court overturns the decision, citing Article 109 of the Personal Status Law of 199, and saying the mother has priority in raising the minor as long as the conditions of the law have been met. The Supreme Court also agrees with the Appeal Court decision.
