Pics: British Mom Cries Out After Her Daughter Was Battered By Her Bahraini Husband, Jailed, Then Released, But Won't Be Allowed To Leave Bahrain
The 26-year-old had been accused of adultery under the country's ultra conservative rules, but her family says she only faced the accusation when she threatened to leave Bahrain after her husband, Jassim Alhaddar, turned violent.
Last night her mother, Shelley, confirmed Ms James had been released from jail but was still not allowed to leave the country. She had earlier released pictures showing injuries the family said had been inflicted by Alhaddar.
A Crowdfunding page has been set up in a bid to raise £2,500 to bring her home.
