According to a previously released statement from the Internal Security Forces, on June 14 – the day before the raid – police in Beirut received an implementation decision based on an April ruling from the Sunni Shariah court that awarded custody to the father.The decision required the imprisonment of Mansour for up to six months until F.S. was handed over.In a statement, NGOs supporting Mansour's case called for the court's custody verdict to be overturned, based on rules from the Islamic Legal Council that say a mother cannot relinquish custody of a child under the age of 12 . The statement also emphasized the right of the father to see and host the minor, and the right of the child to be shielded from any parental conflicts.
