Carla Aquarius in conversation with Kadija Idris, mother of Amir Ibrahim.
Q: Did he [Amir] have a connection to Bureau Jeugdzorg? (Youthcare Bureau=Justice Department)
Q: Could you elaborate a bit?
A: Yes. I'm divorced from my husband. We used to live in Alphen a/d Rijn. I came to Maastricht because of the children. Bureau Jeugdzorg said to me: ''you are not going to take good care of your children''
Q: They just said that?
A: Yes. My husband is a little hard to understand for the Dutch people. But I don't get it. We are Somalian. We harm no one. We are married, the husband stands above the wife.
Bureau Jeugdzorg told me: ''if you stay with your husband, you can't see your children anymore.'' So that's why I came to Maastricht.
Q: Were you threatened with the fact that if you stayed with your husband, you would lose your children?
A: Yes Bureau Jeugzorg told me that.
Q: How did you feel about that?
A: Yes...difficult. My children and my husband is better, but if I can't see my children anymore, that's hard. I can't live without my children.
Q: So then you had to choose
A: I chose for my children not for my husband. I chose my children and that 's why I came to Maastricht.
(Kadija and her children were mandatorily sent to Maastricht)
