“No one is above the law which is easy to say and hard to achieve. Especially when you have power.

“My case is similar to other cases which will be taken by the Global Justice Foundation,” said Mr. Ayesh. “Our mission at the Global Justice Foundation is to shine the light, raise awareness and educate people about different cases so they know how to avoid becoming victims.
