SALLY Faulkner may never see her children again.

The father at the centre of last year's botched child snatching off a Beirut street, stunningly revealed he has no interest in bringing their children out to Australia, the Courier Mail reports.

Ali Elamine has broken his silence to refute claims Lahela and Noah, his children with ex-partner Brisbane mum Faulkner, were being ill-treated since Faulkner's jailing and later deportation for her Channel 9 funded failed child recovery attempt in the Lebanese capital last April.

Mr Elamine told News Corp Australia he disputed his wife's claims and vowed to ensure their children, Lahela now aged six and Noah four, would - when older - learn of her behaviour and claims which included that he has refused Australian embassy welfare checks.
