Reason for poor enforcement of Hague Convention orders in Poland

Hi Folks,

I just received a fax from the Polish Central Authorities describing the procedure, which is used in Poland to enforce the Hague Convention treaty. Essentially, it is up to the left-behind parent to enforce the court decision to recover kidnapped children. As it stands today, Poland still fails to fully fulfill its Hague Convention obligations in this area …

In a nutshell, the kidnapping parent faces minimal Punishment and the process will take few more months (weeks, at best) should my wife decide to use all possible legal avenues. The maximum punishment for violating the court’s order is laughable… ~ 18.00 USD
a day.

Final Decision and enforcement procedure to read the PDF file of the fax, which describes the process. We need to pressure Poland to change it!
