The Tunisian grandfather about the future of Elijah and Jonas
For nearly two years living and Jonas Elijah at her grandparents and Saida Ahmed Ochi in Tunisia.
Mr. Ochi, as it is for you, that your son Issam in prison?
Achmed Ochi: This is difficult. My child is in prison. And Janine is coming here.
Issam has kidnapped the children. Why did he do it?
He had no residence permit, she demanded a divorce. He was afraid, reported to be losing the children and. That's why he and Jonas Elijah taken to Tunisia.
What is there for a solution?
Janine wants to take the children back to Switzerland. For themselves, for their mother and their father. This is the, what they want - without Issam. It does not matter. We think: The children are Janine and Issam. But when the kids are back in Switzerland, it is hot: Farewell, Issam.
The situation is much more difficult for Issam, He sees the children of eight years is not long. Janine, however, can see the children, when they want. Every day. Of 8 Clock in the morning until 21 Clock in the evening.
What about Elijah and Jonas goes with you in Jendouba?
The children live here well. They have their own TV, a room, air conditioning and bikes. I ride with them to the countryside. Because they have no parents, Doing everything. But I am not her father. They love their father more than me Issam, They love their mom more than Saida. This is sad. We, for children. For my son. Even for Janine, it is also sad.
Do you want to, Issam that comes back to Tunisia?
No, I want the opposite. I want, Issam that can stay in Switzerland. And manages well with Janine. That the two find a solution with the children.
And what could be the solution?
This year, Elias French at school have. I want to make sure, He also learns that German. He can go to Switzerland and the Swiss can talk to. This is, I think. I think, that they go back one day to Switzerland. But Issam need guarantees.
