The doctor, who for years had been held prisoner in Libya along with five Bulgarian nurses on suspicion of  having infected 400 children with the HIV virus, will come to the Netherlands at the end of this week.

His parents and four sisters live in Woerden. They came to the Netherlands at the invitation of the UN refugee organisation UNHCR in December 2005. Before that time the parents, the four sisters and their brother, the doctor, lived in Libya but after the doctor had been arrested life became impossible for them.

His relatives in Woerden did everything they could to bring about the release of their brother   Ashraf Al-Hazouz. Last year they presented a petition including 1.000 signatures to the special parliamentary commission for foreign affairs.
