For five years, Nathalie Morin has been a prisoner in her own home. Morin, a Canadian citizen, lives with her common-law husband, Saeed Al Shahrani, and their three children in Saudi Arabia. The last time she was able to leave the country and visit Canada was in 2006. Since then, the 26 year old and her children have been held captive by Shahrani. This week Morin was apprehended by the police for leaving her home with the children without her husband's permission and she will now have to face the Saudi courts.



There is a petition to help her, although I can't see the Saudi government actually listening to a petition, it's worth a shot.


Her family has started a website. The English version is at
