Polish corrupt judge rejects application for abducted children from Canada

I am saddened , but not surprised, to hear that Polish court rejected yet another  application under Hague Convention International law to return abducted children of [link id=’791′ text=”Steven Watkins”] to Poland by their mother. This pattern of blind Polish nationalism during international custody cases is a typical shameful occurrence.

Polish authorities fail to understand that child abductions are real crime. To this day, Poland does NOT recognize parental abductions as crimes. Pathetic regimes of many previous Polish governments for years promised to change this situation, yet nothing has changed. But they DO make really loud noises about visa free traveling to United States.

I presume that the father has still the option to appeal to the second level court, Continue reading “Polish corrupt judge rejects application for abducted children from Canada”

The way Polish legal system works or doesn’t

It seems that the Polish Courts found a way out to keep the children in Poland, even after the abducting parent was initially order to return the child back to their homes abroad.
After a 3rd instance appeals have been removed by the Polish legislature for the family disputes (divorces, custody cases, Hague Convention cases…), the Polish judges of the regional courts feel that ignoring the Hague Convention Law is a valid option, and … they (the judges) are not afraid to use it.

In my case, the final court order to return my children: Amelia and Daniel back to their home in California, was issued in late 2001( after 2 very long years of adjudication!) and … nothing happened. Polish family court “tried” to enforce the order, but had no much “luck” or will – the mother decided to ignore it; she went  into hiding, and the local police “could not find” her for over 5 years;  the responsible judge refused to grant the permission to publish my children’s pictures in the media…).

Hague Convention in Poland

A blog entry from a desperate Austrian parent, whose child was abducted to Poland by the mother.

Hello all ,just a short note from an Australian Parent trying to get my child back into my life.

The way Poland has handled my Hague Convention case can only be described as disgraceful.

I went to visit him last month and the Polish courts have granted 100% custody to the mother even though he is not Polish citizen and the Hague Convention strictly prohibits any custody decision until H.C is decided. The Hague case has been going for years now even though the mother has produced no evidence or reason of why he should not be returned to his home country. After completing a hearing in Australia the transcripts took a month to travel from the Polish CA to the court dealing with the case in Poznan even if they sent it via horse and cart it couldn’t take that long! Now they are suggesting it will take a month just to translate them ??

The mother is using an inocent child as a chess piece in her quest for money even though she has taken a house in Poland which I paid for already.

She is a very crazy and angry woman and I worry every day about what physiological damage is being done to my baby boy.

To all you other parents out there going through such a horrible experience my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Regards, Dan.

This time it is a mother whose children were abducted by her ex husband. She is desperate, her English is poor, but this doesn’t make her story any less tragic. Unfortunately she did leave any contact information.

My husband asconced with my children on 22.08.2000, from Biarritz, France. My children and I were living there, I had just been serepated from him by the TGI of Paris. In short he flew with them in a private jet to Warsaw. I moved heaven and hell to find them. We had been doing business in Warsaw, as well as in other major cities. It never occurred to me that they had landed here. Details will be happy to share if there is interest.
