Allegations of torture and abuse of 5 daughters- 10 to 16- by a Jordanian expat and his two sisters. Cigarette burns while forced to kneel naked, broken noses, beatings with ropes and sticks, pierced by needles, underfed.
Recently divorced after 18 years of marriage, the mum- who had also been abused- had moved back to Jordan and was unable to take care of the girls. According to the mum, the dad, who is a jail warden in the UAE, hated her for not having boys, and obviously hated the girls as well.
Dad and his two wicked sisters have been arrested.
