Little May one of the lucky ones with 261 cases of parental abduction in 2011


THE abduction of little Swords girl, May Monaghan last year was one of a staggering 261 cases of parental abduction of children into and out of Ireland or involving Irish children abroad in 2011.

According to new figures from the Department of Justice, May’s abduction by her estranged father who took her from Cyprus where she was living with her mother, to war-torn Syria was one of 142 new cases in 2011 that were added to 119 ongoing cases from the previous year.

May’s was the only case listed from Cypus. On release of the figures, Minister for Justice, Alan Shatter said: ‘Parental child abduction remains a constant problem. When family conflict occurs, it is important that estranged parents and spouses exhaust all their options to resolve differences and reach agreement in the best interests of the children involved. ‘ The use of mediation to resolve difficulties can result in agreements that can last while minimising the negative impact on all those involved. To help families access mediation, the Family Mediation Service has now been formally merged with.
