  • Description

    EX-QUEEN DINA OF JORDAN WAS FILMED AT HER VILLA IN THE EXCLUSIVE CAIRO, EGYPT, SUBURB OF MAADI JAN 18 AS SHE MADE A PUBLIC PROTEST THAT SINCE KING HUSSEIN DIVORCED HER IN 1957 SHE HAS NEVER BEEN ALLOWED TO SEE THEIR DAUGHTER, PRINCESS ALIA. THE YOUNG PRINCESS WILL BE AGED SIX YEARS NEXT MONTH.

    THE EX-QUEEN APPEALED TO THE KING TO BE GIVEN "EVERY NORMAL WOMAN'S RIGHT OF FREE ACCESS TO HER CHILD". THE PLEA, SHE SAID, IS HER LAST RESORT TO TRY TO GET ACCESS TO THE CHILD. SHE FEELS JUSTIFIED IN TAKING PUBLIC ACTION AFTER A PATIENT BUT FRUITLESS WAIT.

    SHE SAYS: "I HAVE RECEIVED OCCASIONAL ASSURANCES THAT I WOULD BE ALLOWED TO SEE MY DAUGHTER, BUT IN REALITY NO CONTACT HAS BEEN PERMITTED. I AM IN DOUBT AS TO WHETHER OR NOT HIS MAJESTY HAS RECEIVED ALL MY APPEALS." IN REPLY, HOWEVER, THE KING SAID HE WOULD NOT STOOP TO THE POINT WHERE HE WOULD PUBLICLY STATE HIS VIEWS AND REASONING ON HIS FIRST MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE.

    THE KING "WILL CONTINUE TO LOOK AFTER THE UPBRINGING OF HIS DAUGHTER WITH THE PRIDE, LOVE AND CARE WHICH IS ALL HE COULD GIVE HER, AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TRADITIONS OF HER PEOPLE," SAID THE STATEMENT FROM THE ROYAL PALACE.
