Father says his daughter was left traumatised after local authority threatened to remove her
Ali says he wasn’t home when social workers came to tell his wife, Jamileh, that their three-year-old daughter would be removed from their care, but he heard the conversation, the cries of his wife and screams of his child, over the phone.
“My wife was really scared and my child was really scared. She was under the table where they were sitting, screaming: ‘I don’t want to go anywhere,’ and scratching the walls. It was so horrific that the interpreter got really upset,” he says.
