Mohammed Hassan's parents said, 'We lost part of us, part of our hearts; feeling cannot be described in words. We have to live with this pain for the rest of our lives but what give us hope is that we believe these murderers will complete their line in prison. Your help is vital and being a witness will give us hope that justice will be brought into place. In the end let us remind you with a verse from Quran that encourage you to say the truth, In the name of GOD. And if you are on a journey and cannot find a scribe, then a security deposit should be taken. And if one of you entrusts another, then let him who is entrusted discharge his trust faithfully and let him fear Allah, his Lord. And do not conceal testimony, for whoever conceals it - his heart is indeed sinful, and Allah is knowing of what you do'.
