According to various sources, Daniel has a twin sister, although specific information about her remains undisclosed. An online portal claims that Daniel’s sister is named Emily Khalife, but this information lacks confirmation from reputable media sources. Additionally, The Telegraph reported that until a few years ago, Daniel’s mother and sister resided near the outskirts of Richmond Park. Their property was discreetly surveilled by plainclothes officers. A neighbor shared insights about Daniel’s family, mentioning that an upstairs tenant was a mother with a son and a daughter. The son would frequently come and go, often using loud language. Approximately three years ago, around a year after their move into the area, she relocated to Wales.
Daniel Khalife’s parents, Maria Khalife and Joseph Khalife, both of Middle Eastern descent, raised him in London. Although limited information is available about his parents, they were known for their reserved nature within their neighborhood. However, their lives took an unexpected turn as they became subjects of media attention due to their son Daniel’s escape from prison, a situation that garnered significant public interest.
Despite the heightened media scrutiny and widespread discussion of Daniel’s prison break, his parents have remained discreet and have refrained from making any public statements about their son’s case. Daniel Khalife managed to escape from prison on September 6, 2023, and his whereabouts remain unknown at present. There are speculations that he may have left the country, but concrete confirmation is elusive as an ongoing manhunt continues. Prior to his arrest on January 26, 2023, Daniel served as a computer network engineer with the Royal Corps of Signals. Remarkably, he had joined the army at the tender age of 16 in 2018. In 2019, he became a soldier in the British Army, stationed at Beacon Barracks in Stafford at the time of his arrest in January 2023. Moreover, Daniel is scheduled to stand trial on November 13, 2023. Allegations suggest that he was involved in gathering information intended for transmission to Iran.
