Prisoner awaits birth of son after 'smuggling sperm to wife'

June 24, 2013 11:02 A.M. (Updated: June 24, 2013 8:29 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A prisoner from Jerusalem is awaiting the birth of a son after smuggling his sperm to his wife, a prisoners group said Monday.

Fahmi Mashahra, 33, was detained on 4 Sept. 2002 and was sentenced to 20 years, the director of the Ahrar Centre for Prisoners Studies and Human Rights Fouad al-Khafsh said.

Mashahra's wife said they decided on smuggling the sperm after her husband was first detained when she was eight-months pregnant, adding that her husband has never seen his first child Obeideh.

The wife said she had seen many women get pregnant by their husbands in jail through smuggled semen, the center said.

She is now three-months pregnant, the center said.
