The Stephen Watkins case is just one of many IPCA cases in Poland, where the polish courts rule in the criminal abductors favor. Poland protects their own,and doesn’t respect international laws or the Hague convention. A legal process in Poland is a total waste of time and money. – Martin Waage, ABP World Group
Polish judge rules that Watkins boys to remain with their mother
A judge in Poland is defying arrest warrants from Canada allowing a mother who is accused of parental abduction to retain custody of her two sons, Christopher and Alexander Watkins.
Earlier this month it was reported that Toronto born Christopher and Alexander Watkins had been found in Poland. Their father Stephen Watkins was on hand to finally see his two young sons after two and a half years.
In Canada a warrant had already been issued for the capture of Edyta (Ustaszewski) Watkins. She is also featured on RCMP’s Canada’s Most Wanted list after leaving Canada for the United States with Christopher and Nicholas. It is alleged she used a suspended passport to travel into Europe disappearing until this year.
On Thursday a Polish judge recommended that the boys remain in Poland with their mother. The court also recommends that the mother’s parental authority be limited and that a Court Guardian be appointed to the boys.
