1. SOUNDBITE (English) Ali El Amine, Lebanese father of two children in custody dispute:
“Technically we live here, they (the children) will be staying.” UPSOUND, journalist: “(Inaudible) to Australia?”
“Maybe down the track, when things cool off, we talk a bit more. Maybe, why not.”
The Lebanese father embroiled with his estranged Australian wife in a child custody battle on Wednesday said that his children will stay in Lebanon.
Ali El Amine said he has dropped charges against the mother of his two children and an Australian TV crew detained on suspicion of the attempted abduction of the two children.
