Sally Faulkner and estranged husband, Ali Elamine, have been ordered to reach an agreement over their children in a move that could aid the 60 Minutes crew.
Faulkner has been informed she would have to settle for full rights of access to the children rather than custody, news.com.au reports.
“We are finding a solution that will resolve all of the problems. The solution is an agreement between her and her husband. It will not be a private agreement but one the court will accept. They are talking now, a couple of times,” Faulkner’s lawyer Ghassan Moghabghab said.
News of the agreement comes after the Tara Brown and the 60 Minutes crew were handcuffed alongside Faulkner and brought to face Investigative Judge Rami Abdullah shortly before midday in Beirut time.

What do an Australian mother, TV crew and employees of a British “child recovery” service have in common? They’ve all been charged with a slew of kidnapping-related offences after two children were grabbed in broad daylight on a busy street in Lebanon last week.
Sally Faulker is the mother of two children, Lahela, 6, and Noah, 4. The kids were taken to Beirut by their father Ali el-Amin from their home in Brisbane seven months ago, Faulker claims he stole them.
She, along with a four-person 60 Minutes team, including popular presenter Tara Brown, and several workers from Child Abduction Recovery International (CARI) were arrested after a seemingly botched attempt to steal them back.
