Nazier Desai, father of the four, said in a statement that he had received news that two of the siblings, Huda and Waliyullah, were being released after 11 months in Zhahbān prison in Jeddah and are expected back in SA by Monday afternoon.

Desai added that the family’s joy was tempered by lack of news about the other two siblings, Yumna and Wasiyullah, who continued to be held without charge.
