Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - A Yemeni woman, who claimed to have been forcibly deported from Qatar, landed in Sweden on Sunday seeking refuge for her family.

The woman, who goes by the name of Hayat, appeared in a video last month saying that Doha deported her and her son to Djibouti, from where they could be returned to Yemen.

Her case caught the attention of the media after she urged the international community to stop authorities in Djibouti from sending them back to Yemen because of the danger she faced from her family.

Hayat, who was married to a Qatari national and lived in Doha, accused the Qatari government of “kidnapping her”.

“I won and got my rights, first with my child and secondly with freedom in a country that upholds the rule of law and rights, where humanity is above all,” Hayat said on Twitter.

The reason for her deportation from Qatar is not known but Hayat claimed in the video that her former husband had attempted to revoke her Qatari residency to get custody of their son.

She said her family in Yemen see her divorce as "shameful" and have threatened to kill her if she returns home.

Yemen's Minister of Information, Muamar El Eyrani, condemned Qatar's actions last month.

“Qatar has violated human rights laws it signed by deporting her,” Mr Al Eryani said on Twitter.

The Yemeni official accused Doha of keeping in contact with the Iran-backed Houthi rebels.

Yemen's expatriates council in Doha said that Qatari officials were in direct contact with the rebels regarding Hayat's case.

"A memorandum by the Qatari authorities that justified the crime of kidnapping and the forcible deportation of Hayat is a violation of human rights laws and the asylum agreement signed by Doha," Mr El Eryani said.

Doha's move "violates all international laws and norms as well as the international Security Council resolutions,” he said.

There has been no comment on the case from Qatari authorities.
