Mum flies to Libya to reclaim daughter

by Manchester Evening News

A WIGAN mother has flown to Libya in a bid to reclaim her kidnapped daughter.

Sarah Taylor, 31, hopes to invoke Sharia Law to win back four-year-old Nadia.

The little girl was snatched by her father seven months ago from her home in Wigan, Lancs.
Her mother left London for Tripoli yesterday in the hope of convincing a judge that she should be with her under Sharia Law.

The Inland Revenue officer will argue that under Islamic rules when marriages break-up, daughters must remain with their mothers until they marry.

Mrs Taylor left Heathrow clutching Nadia's favourite pink doll and with her heart-filled with optimism.

She is prepared to swap her life in the UK and leave her parents and friends to relocate to Libya if it means Nadia can live with her.

Mrs Taylor's ex-husband, Fawzi Abu-Arghub (corr) has vowed their daughter will never be allowed to return to Britain.

The Libyan surveyor snatched her in defiance of a British High Court ruling after the couple split up.

He told her he was taking Nadia to a family party in Manchester but instead secretly flew her to his homeland.

Although his ex-wife had her passport, he had obtained a new document for her in Libya.

Before boarding her flight yesterday , Mrs Taylor said: "I have to do everything in my power to get Nadia back.

"No-one in authority has helped me. The government doesn't want to know, even though Nadia's father has broken the law, so I am going-it alone.

"It has been hard saying goodbye to my mum and dad, family and friends but everyone understands Nadia is my life.
