The Daily Mail – A British schoolgirl lost a £500,000 inheritance from her father after a Sharia court in Dubai learned she was a Christian. It is the latest episode in a vicious spat that saw her mother held for four weeks in the Arab kingdom for branding her love rival a ‘horse’ on Facebook.
Paris Shahravesh, 14, was to inherit money left by her banker father, Pedro Dos Santos, who died of a heart attack in March. But his second wife, Samah Al Hammadi, alerted police when the teenager’s mother insulted her on social media, filed papers claiming the inheritance.
A UAE sharia court authorized Santos’ former employer to award his £500,000 to Al Hammadi.
