It should be required protocol that if a Saudi wants to qualify for a scholarship, he should give a DNA sample to be kept on file AND be forewarned that should any complaints surface regarding abandonment, it will be used to verify paternity and if found positive the scholarship will be revoked. That should hopefully discourage them not to get into illicit relationships with foreign women while studying abroad and having illegitimate children which they abandon. It has to be nipped in the bud from the very beginning. Tara Umm Omar
