Number Deal Yet In Lebanese Baby Custody Battle

A Lebanese father of two children at the centre of a custody battle says he'll not drop attempted kidnapping charges against his estranged Australian wife.

Mister Ali al Amin is accused of abducting the couple'south children and taking them from Australia to Lebanon latest year without the information of his wife, Sally Faulkner, who's charged with attempting to snatch them back.

Ms Faulkner is suspected of mounting a plot to retrieve the children with the assistance of agency Baby Abduction Recovery International (CARI) and funding from Australian TV programme sixty minutes.

CCTV footage allegedly shows a car approaching the youngsters while they were walking to school in Beirut before several people got out of the vehicle and bundled them inside.

Among those detained by Lebanese authorities were Australian TV presenter Tara Brown and crew members Benjamin Williamson, David Ballment and Stephen Rice. Two Britons working for CARI and two Lebanese citizens were also detained.

Mister Amin has indicated he wants to deal separately with Ms Faulkner rather than discuss charges against the other suspects as portion of a comprehensive deal.

"They're trying to link everything up with (Faulkner) but I don't have time for that," said Ali.

"The kids are good, that'south the most necessary thing. And everything else, we'll look what happens."

Faulkner'south lawyer, Ghassan Moughabghab, said that Mister Amin'south valid team halted negotiations on Saturday and wasn't making concessions. "He said he's not in a hurry," the lawyer said.

The judge has postponed his inquiry until Wednesday to authorize lawyers to continue negotiations to attempt and resolve the case before it reaches court.
