This story is about Matthew and Grace Huang who are an American couple from Los Angeles, being wrongfully imprisoned in Qatar for the sad death of their 8 year old daughter, Gloria. The Huangs, who are Asian Americans, adopted three children from Africa. Gloria appears to have died from the consequences of an eating disorder, stemming from being starved and deprived of food during her early years in Africa. This is in fact not unique to Gloria, but is a common consequential condition of people who are/were severely deprived of food over an extended period. I beg CNN to report on this horrible event so that the world can become aware of this injustice, and the level of ignorance and prejudice in Qatar. The Huangs are being imprisoned in Qatar due to racial and academic ignorance, obvious prejudice by the Qatari officials and shameful simple mindedness. The Qatari officials can't seem to understand how other people in other cultures can "love" others regardless of colour, race or 'hereditary traits'.
According to the family's web page "The police investigating Gloria’s death found the family situation inherently suspicious. For example, the investigative police reports repeatedly suggest that Matthew and Grace could not have had a legitimate reason to adopt children who were not “good-looking” and who did not share their “hereditary traits.” The investigative reports theorize that Matthew and Grace “bought” their children in order to harvest their organs, or perhaps to perform medical experiments on them.."
How dunce and uncivilized for investigative officials in a seemingly progressive country to come to such conclusion.
Further, are they not aware of this medical condition that affects millions of people who were/are deprived food?
Qatar promotes itself as a progressive nation, yet in substance and policy, it appears otherwise. In this day and age how could it be so difficult for seemingly civilized people to accept that the Huangs adopted their three beautiful children out of love?
I beg CNN to give media coverage to this story.
