Australia / Canada – Parental Child Abduction Case

AN Australian woman arrested at Los Angeles International Airport with her seven-year-old son has been acquitted in a Canadian court of parental abduction.

The woman planned to fly to Australia with the child without telling her Canadian husband.

A court in Brandon, a city in the central Canadian province of Manitoba, was told the woman’s marriage was crumbling in December 2011, when she picked up her son from school and flew to Los Angeles.

They were booked on a flight to Australia.

When the father returned home from work the family residence in Manitoba was dark and his wife’s jewellery, cash, travel bags and many of their son’s clothes were missing.

Canadian and US authorities were able to track the woman and her son to the LA airport, where she was arrested.

Justice John Menzies ruled the mother always intended to return with the boy to Manitoba, and did not intend to deprive the father of his ability to regain care and control of his son.

“I’m satisfied that it was always her intention to return,” Menzies told the Brandon Court of Queen’s Bench on Monday, the Brandon Sun reported.

The woman, who has not been identified to protect the identity of her son, met her husband in Australia in the mid 1990s, they married in 2001 and moved to Canada in 2008.
