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.

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.
