The son of Jersey resident Maggie Turner who was arrested in Qatar and had not been heard of for more than a fortnight has finally made contact.

Malcolm Bidali, whose story featured on the programme last night (19 May) phoned his mother this morning, following an intervention from Kenyan ambassador in Qatar.

The phone call lasted 10 minutes and he was accompanied by two security guards whilst making the call.

He is unhurt but is being held without charge in solitary confinement and has no access to a lawyer or legal advice.

Currently he has not been charged with anything and did not say why he is being held.
