Nigerian children do not deserve Hague Convention protection:Are UK judges racist?

As the Children & Young People Now reports, the UK appeal court decided that the Hague Convention reasoning’s have no matter in a recent case of children who were abducted from US to Nigeria. They justified their ruling, which in essence condones the action of abducting mother, with a “bigger good” of the children. Would they rule if she was…. of a different race?

European Court of Human Rights – are they for real?

European Court for Human rights issued another laughable decision in a case of international abduction

I find decisions of the European Court of Human Rights to be just somewhat laughable. Polish parent who sued his government in the court in Strasburg for negligence by Polish justice system in enforcing his visitation rights was awarded astronomical amount of …..2000 euros. (that translates roughly to $2500!) . This includes all expenses that this poor father had to endure when fighting with the Polish apparatus of judges and social agencies.

It looks that the judges of this court believe that the European socialist governments have the right to screw their citizens, and any awarded penalties have no real meaning. The question for these judges is: What is the incentive for Poland and other governments to fix their bureaucratic incompetence? Your leniency?

Www.gazeta.pl in today’s article (June 14,2001) described what really happened when Natalia J. was trying to execute her legal court order in Kielce, Poland last week.

The article in the www.gazeta.pl clearely describes, how it was due to the father’s illegal activities and inaction of the Polish government agencies, that the transition of the children between the parents did not take proceed in a rational manner. American Embassy in Warsaw has already sent an official diplomatic protest to the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding the way the whole incident was handled by the Polish authorities.
Here is the full text (sorry for the time being Polish version only):

Polacy źle potraktowali dzieci

Ambasada amerykańska protestuje przeciwko sposobowi, w jaki polski wymiar sprawiedliwości przekazał matce dzieci, wywiezione 2,5 roku temu ze Stanów Zjednoczonych przez ojca. Continue reading “Www.gazeta.pl describes what really happened during the recovery of the children”

Polish Human Rights Commissioner letter to Polish Ministry of Justice

On September 5th, 2000 Polish Human Rights Comissioner (Ombudsman) has contacted the Minister of Justice of Poland in regards to the
execution of courts orders in cases where a child was abducted to Poland.

On September 5th, 2000 Polish Human Rights Comissioner (Ombudsman) has contacted the Minister of Justice of Poland in regards to the execution of courts orders in cases where a child was abducted to Poland.

Ombudsman informed the Minister, that even though the procedure is documented in details by Polish law, and Polish government guarantees assistance, children are not forcefully return to parents abroad.

Complains received by Ombudsman suggest that parents have considerable difficulty in obtaining support during the execution of court orders. Courts do not execute its own decisions, and in the entire multi-step process there are in fact more remedies to the abductor parents. This situation compromises the credibility of Polish courts and Poland.
