Will missing kids be discussed when Polish PM comes to Ottawa?


Source: KJ Mullins from Newz4u.net .

On May 12 Polish Prime Minister, Mr. Donald Tusk will arrive in Canada for the first time. Families with missing children located in Poland are hoping that Prime Minister Stephen Harper will work on their behalf with Tusk while he’s in Ottawa.

Tusk will be in Canada to discuss with Prime Minister Harper the possibility of expanding trade with Poland.

Tusk’s arrival in Canada takes place the same day as the arrival of Canadian Stephen Watkins in Poland. Watkins will be in the Polish Hague Appeal Court, fighting for the return of his sons Alexander and Christopher.

Poland is one of the nations that have ignores international obligations when it comes to international parental child abductions. For two Toronto fathers caught in the battle of trying to bring their Canadian children home this refusal of Poland to carry through with Hague Court orders has been a costly nightmare.

Watkins has been well documented in his search for his sons Christopher and Alexander. In 2011 the boys’ mother was given limited parental rights by Polish Courts after she was reported by the children’s school. This took place prior to Canadian Authorities knowing of the “Watkins Missing Children” whereabouts.

Watkins was in Poland during December for the Polish Hague Convention Trial. It should have been a clear-cut case. Watkins had sole custody of the children prior to his ex-wife’s alleged abduction of them on March 8, 2009. Instead Polish courts ignored the International Hague Order.

Watkins will be arriving in Poland with two letters from Canadian officials already sent to Polish officials dealing with his case. The National Recognized Missing Children Organization of Poland, ITAKA, will also be addressing the court during his appeal trial.

Watkins said in an email of the situation, “The Polish Hague Convention Trial, which ended in December 15, 2011, refused to return my abducted Canadian sons, who were born in Canada and had never traveled to Poland before. I had been granted sole custody by the Ontario Courts after living with me full time since 2007 prior to their abduction by their non-custodial mother.”

Watkins is not alone. Grzegorz Nowacki, a Polish Canadian father from Toronto, is also trying to bring home his child, Aleksander Nowacki, from Poland since May 2011 when he was abducted to Poland by his wife. The Polish judicial system is treating this case as domestic case rather than a Hague Convention case and they are not honoring or respecting Ontario Court Orders. Mr. Nowacki applied for access visitation for his son in Poland during The Hague Court proceedings, but the Polish Judge rejected visitation which is in contravention of The Hague Convention Treaty. Mr. Nowacki also agrees that it is a struggle and injustice to get Poland to follow The Hague Convention Treaty.

Children caught in this battle deal with parental alienation, a form of child abuse. They are ripped out of the world they know and placed in situations that can be dangerous as the parent who abducted them tries to evade capture.

“Poland has a long proven history of being a non-compliant signatory of the Hague Convention Treaty and failing not only ordering the return children but also NOT enforcing the return of children all together. Is this a responsible Canadian decision by the Prime Minister of Canada to work with Poland knowing all this information in advance?,” asks Stephen Watkins, “If the Prime Minister of Canada won’t do anything… who will fight for the human rights for our Canadian citizens let alone for our Canadian Businesses?

“Please don’t forget that you have two parents”

Last week Max Troitsky celebrated his daughter’s second birthday with a cake, candles and an empty chair at the table.

Little Julie Troitsky remains somewhere in Russia with her mother, Troitsky’s estranged wife, Anna, who disappeared with their child a few days before Thanksgiving in violation of a child custody order.

In recent weeks, Max Troitsky learned that Anna has filed for divorce in Russia, a move Troitsky’s lawyer suspects is an attempt to establish jurisdiction there for a custody action. In court paperwork, she indicated that she did not know Max’s whereabouts, Troitsky said.

Meanwhile, in Bucks County — where the couple’s divorce proceedings were under way — a judge earlier this month froze all assets in his wife’s name and gave Max Troitsky the legal ability to move and dispose of some marital assets. A judge already awarded Max Troitsky full physical and legal custody of Julie after Anna defied a court order in December to return to the United States.

But it remains to be seen how Russian authorities will handle the existing U.S. custody order. Troitsky and his attorney do not anticipate a quick resolution.

“She has committed no crime in Russia, and the U.S. Embassy has no authority on Russian soil,” Troitsky’s laywer Jeffrey Liebmann said. “It is a real nightmare.”

Troitsky, who divides time between Bensalem and Upper Southampton homes, recently went public with the case, anticipated to be one of Russia’s first tests under the Hague Abduction Convention, which dictates civil aspects of international child abduction.

n October, Russia joined the convention as a partner country, meaning it will honor civil verdicts, such as child custody orders, issued by foreign courts, and return children abducted by a parent.

For now, though, Russian authorities are not under any obligation to assist with enforcing custody orders until it establishes a central authority to oversee compliance with the Hague Convention, Liebmann said.

There also is some skepticism whether Russian courts will comply. Other convention nations, such as Brazil, Chile and Mexico, don’t routinely follow convention provisions.

Russia’s judiciary has a “less than perfect record” for independence and impartiality, and a recent report suggests that judges are open to bribes and other external influences, according to the McGill University blog, “Legal Frontiers.”

The Troitskys, Russian natives and U.S. citizens, were in the process of divorcing following five years of marriage. After the couple separated, Anna, Julie and Anna’s mother, Elena Demyanyuk, continued to live in the family’s Upper Southampton home.

As the divorce and custody cases proceeded, Anna filed a petition seeking court permission to relocate to Moscow, Russia, or Denver, Colo., where her brother lives. In mid-November, a Bucks County judge granted the couple shared legal custody of Julie and denied Anna’s request to relocate to either place.

 

Four days after the final custody order was issued, Anna, Julie and Demyanyuk left the United States without his knowledge or permission, in violation of their custody order, Troitsky said.

Troitsky learned about the divorce filing in Russia from a legal representative he hired in that country. But the proceedings there were continued for a month.

In Russia, couples are first divorced, and everything else, including division of assets and child custody, is handled after that.

Troitsky says he plans to go to Russia once the custody case is under way, which he anticipates could begin in the next six months. At a minimum, he hopes the Russian courts will give him access to his daughter either by Skype, phone or visitation.

Troitsky last spoke to Julie via Skype Nov. 26. In early December, Anna stopped contact. Troitsky said he continues to email her but gets no response.

Last week, Troitsky and his family celebrated Julie’s birthday, something he plans to continue doing until she comes home. He also posted a letter to her on the website he created to bring attention to his custody situation (www.helpbringjuliehome.com).

“While I would do anything to celebrate this important milestone with you in person, sadly, circumstances don’t allow us to celebrate together,” he wrote. “However, on this special day, I want to wish you nothing but laughter, love and happiness in your life! Please don’t forget that you have two parents, and that we both love you, each in our own way.”

Max Troitsky’s letter to his daughter Julie

Dear Julie

Happy birthday, sweetheart! Today you turn 2 years old. While I would do anything to celebrate this important milestone with you in person, sadly, circumstances don’t allow us to celebrate together. However, on this special day, I want to wish you nothing but laughter, love and happiness in your life! Please don’t forget that you have TWO parents, and that we both love you, each in our own way.

As I look back at the last two years, it feels like just two days ago your mom and I brought you home from the hospital, and just yesterday we celebrated your 1st birthday, when you blew out your first candle from your high chair. As you are a year older now, and better able to understand the significance of this day, don’t forget to make a wish before you blow out the candles. If you wish hard enough, your wish will come true!

As you celebrate your birthday with your family in Russia, please remember that you also have a family in the U.S., who loves you and misses you dearly. Because you cannot be here with us, for this important day, your grandparents and I will have to celebrate your birthday without you. We also invited your big teddy bear and your nap-pal Ladybug to join us in singing a happy birthday song for you. They’ve both been asking me about you and wondering when Julie will come home. I wish I had a good answer for them… I just keep telling them that Julie will be back soon, and they understand. In the meantime, they are patiently waiting for you, along with all of your other toys and books.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 73 days since we were separated from each other on November 20, but please know that I am doing everything in my power to fix this and bring you home soon. I also think of you every day… many times a day… and it hurts to know that you’re so far away! But I have faith, and I know in my heart that we will be reunited!

I love you and miss you terribly,

Daddy

Father waits to hear from daughter in 1993 parental abduction case


Source: Alberni Valley Times

Published: Tuesday, December 06, 2011

Joe Chisholm has been told that the daughter he has not seen since May 13, 1993, wants to contact him.

Counsellors with the Canadian Centre for Child Protection told Chisholm that his daughter, Sigourney Teresa Chisholm, who grew up in Victoria under the assumed identity of Thea Whelan, is doing okay, but is still in shock.

On Thursday, her mother, Patricia Joan O’Byrne, 54, was arrested at home by Victoria police, who were working with the Toronto Police Service to solve an 18-year-old parental abduction case. O’Byrne was known to neighbours and colleagues as Pamela Whelan, a public information officer for the provincial government at several ministries.

On Thursday, Toronto police and counsellors sat down with Thea, who was valedictorian of her 2009 graduating class from Victoria High School. She was told her father had been looking for her for 18 years. Her mother and father had married and lived in Toronto. They separated and had joint custody of her when the mother is accused of disappearing with her, violating a custody order. Thea was 20 months old. At the time, Chisholm had a fouryear-old son, Jesse, from a previous relationship.

A September tip to Calgarybased Missing Children Society of Canada eventually led to O’Byrne’s arrest. She is to appear Monday in Toronto’s College Park courthouse for a bail hearing.

Reached at home Saturday, Chisholm said the child protection counsellors have been doing a great job keeping him in touch with his daughter.

“We’ve been sending little notes and messages to her along the way,” Chisholm said. “They said she was in shock. I mean, we’re still in shock, even though we were prepared for this. Jesse and I are walking on eggshells. She didn’t know everything about her past and more is being revealed, and that’s shocking.”

Chisholm sent Thea a note telling her he was looking forward to meeting her. He also told her he cannot imagine what she’s going through. Chisholm’s parents, Don and Joan, have sent her family photographs and a note.

“She hasn’t responded yet. I’ve heard she wants to. It’s just a matter of time,” Chisholm said. “Everything is indicating she’s just getting ready for that day, whether it’s the weekend or a couple of weeks from now.”

Chisholm said his whole family is beside themselves.

“Every family gathering in the last 18 years has been like a funeral. It’s hard to get all excited and huggy and happy when someone’s missing.”

He hopes his daughter has good friends to help her through her extraordinary situation. Counsellors are continuing to support her, he said.

“They made sure she was talked down and not left to her own devices. She hasn’t done anything wrong. She hasn’t committed a crime. She’s the victim,” said Chisholm. “My biggest concern is that she has all the time she needs.”

Chisholm expressed empathy for his ex-wife and hopes the circumstances will not ruin his daughter’s relationship with her mother. “I mean, she’s a good kid – you’ve got to give her mom credit.”

Chisholm does not plan to attend O’Byrne’s court appearance Monday. He has sent her a message.

Krzysztof “Rambo” Rutkowski kidnappet barn fra Norge igjen


Source: Aftenposten

«Rambo» hjalp ung gutt å flykte fra norsk fosterhjem

Den unge guttens ankomst til Moskva var på avisforsider i Russland i helgen, etter at han flyktet gjennom Europa fra norske myndigheter.

Jeg ble selv oppringt av gutten, som ville ha hjelp til å dra fra fosterhjemmet. Og når et barn selv ringer, da sier det seg selv at det er en alvorlig sak.

Den omstridte polske privatetterforskeren Krzysztof Rutkowski forteller om hvordan han bortførte et barn fra et fosterhjem i Norge, i et intervju med Aftenposten.no via en tolk.

Gutten, som er tidlig i tenårene og født russisk, har bodd flere år i Norge sammen med sin norske tidligere stefar og sin russiske mor.

Han ble plassert i et fosterhjem av det norske barnevernet etter en skilsmisse og en påfølgende barnefordelingsstrid.

Gutten var selv aktiv i planleggingen av flukten fra fosterhjemmet på østlandsområdet. Til fosterforeldrene sa han at han skulle ut på trening, da han i virkeligheten hadde avtalt rømningen med Rutkowski.

– Jeg ville ikke kalt det bortføring. Dette er nødrett, sier den russiske kvinnens norske advokat Maggi Rødvik.

Bortførte jente i sommer

Krzysztof Rutkowski ble for alvor kjent i Norge i sommer, etter at han kidnappet en ni år gammel polsk jente fra sitt norske beredskapshjem, i det som Rutkowski selv kaller en «redningsaksjon».

– Gutten ringte til mitt kontor etter å ha lest om hvordan vi reddet den polske jenta, sier Rutkowski.

Bortføringen av den ni år gamle jenta ble mye omtalt i norske medier.

Forrige helg var Rutkowski, som selv kaller seg «Rambo», avbildet i en russisk tabloidavis sammen med gutten og hans mor, etter at ferden til slutt endte i Moskva.

Bilder tatt av et russisk nyhetsbyrå viser hvordan gutten og hans mor ble møtt av det russiske barneombudet, da de ankom Russland.

Guttens mor har i lengre tid ført en kamp mot det norske barnevernet og mot sin norske eks-mann. Russiske medier har videreformidlet grove beskyldninger mot eks-mannen.

Aftenposten.no får bekreftet fra det aktuelle politidistriktet at en anmeldelse ble levert. Saken ble henlagt på grunn av mangel på bevis.

Norske myndigheter vil ikke kommentere

Aftenposten.no er kjent med at den russiske kvinnen er ilagt besøksforbud overfor sin norske tidligere ektemann.

Norges ambassade til Russland henviser til Utenriksdepartementet, som igjen henviser til Justisdepartementet, fordi saken blir omfattet avHaagkonvensjonen om barnebortføring.

Justisdepartementet ønsker ikke å kommentere enkeltsaker, opplyser kommunikasjonsrådgiver Steffen Aagedal.

– Blander oss ikke i familiekonflikter

– Vi blander oss ikke inn i detaljene i familiesaker, det er ikke vårt anliggende. Her var det snakk om et barn som ringte for å be om hjelp til å komme seg til sitt hjemland. Derfor hjalp jeg ham, sier Rutkowski til Aftenposten.no.

Bortføringen av gutten skjedde 29. juli i år, bare en måned etter at han hentet den polske jenta fra et barnevernshjem i Vestfold.

– Først fløy noen av mine agenter til Norge for å undersøke stedet og kontakte moren. Selv om det var gutten som kontaktet oss, ønsket også moren at vi skulle hjelpe sønnen ut av Norge, sier privatetterforskeren, som også har et TV-program om sin virksomhet på polsk TV.

Fra fosterhjemmet på østlandet bar ferden gjennom Tyskland og til Polen med bil. Lengre kom de imidlertid ikke, fordi gutten var etterlyst av norske myndigheter.

– Moren og sønnen hadde problemer med å komme seg inn i Russland, og måtte derfor bli i Polen og vente på en rettskjennelse som gjorde hjemreisen til Russland mulig, sier Rutkowski.

I Polen fulgte en juridisk drakamp mellom norske og russiske myndigheter.

– Dette ble storpolitikk i Polen, da både norske og russiske myndigheter krevde gutten utlevert, sier advokat Rødvik.

Så arbetar UD med bortförda barn


Source: Regjeringen.se

Medierna har de senaste dagarna rapporterat att fler och fler barn förs bort eller hålls kvar i andra länder. Juristen Julia Nusdorfer och hennes kolleger på UD:s konsulära enhet (KC) tar emot flera samtal om dagen.

Om ett barn förs bort över landgränserna kan UD ibland hjälpa. Frågor om vårdnad och umgänge bör avgöras av domstol i det land där barnet har sin invanda miljö, enligt Haagkonventionen. (cc)Om ett barn förs bort över landgränserna kan UD ibland hjälpa. Frågor om vårdnad och umgänge bör avgöras av domstol i det land där barnet har sin invanda miljö, enligt Haagkonventionen.

Siffrorna talar sitt tydliga språk. UD hade 72 fall på sitt bord under 2006. Just nu har KC-enheten 120 fall på sitt bord, och Julia Nusdorfer märker av det ökade trycket.

– Många ringer och är oroliga inför resor. Vågar jag och barnen resa? Våra råd varierar förstås utifrån situation. Men om man verkligen är orolig, och om det handlar om ett land som inte är anslutet till Haagkonventionen, då tycker vi att föräldern noga ska undersöka vilka förebyggande åtgärder som kan vidtas och om de är tillräckliga. Vi betonar att det är väldigt lite vi kan göra om barnen skulle hållas kvar i ett sådant land.

Höga förväntningar på UD

– Det finns fortfarande en föreställning om att UD kan göra så mycket mer än vi kan, säger Julia Nusdorfer.

Den oroliga föräldern bör ta reda på så mycket som möjligt om de lagar och regler som gäller i landet och ladda upp med kontaktuppgifter till släkt och vänner i landet ifråga.

I värsta fall händer det ändå. Barnet hålls kvar eller förs bort. Den konsulära enheten ber då föräldern att komma in med en ansökan med alla uppgifter om barnen och båda föräldrarna samt foton och en beskrivning av vad som hänt. Den anmälande föräldern får rådet att anlita ett juridiskt ombud.

Vikten av Haagkonventionen

Ett olovligt bortförande är ett brott enligt svensk lagstiftning och kan leda till en straffrättslig process ledd av åklagare. Om landet dit barnen förts har anslutit sig till Haagkonventionen blir ärendet mer lättjobbat, och runt 85 procent av fallen klaras upp.

– Vi kontaktar då centralmyndigheten i landet, oftast motsvarigheten till UD eller justitiedepartementet. De kollar om barnen kan föras hem igen frivilligt. Om det inte fungerar går ärendet vidare till domstol, och målet är att det ska avgöras inom sex veckor. Efter domstolens beslut kan det i värsta fall bli fråga om polishämtning, om föräldern som olovligen fört bort barnet vägrar lämna barnet ifrån sig.

UD fungerar bland annat som kontaktförmedlare mellan den drabbade föräldern eller dennes ombud och centralmyndigheten i det andra landet.

Om landet inte skrivit under Haagkonventionen är det betydligt mer komplicerat.

– Då gäller det landets lagstiftning. Oftast försöker vi driva fallet via ambassaden. Men det är svårt om den bortförande föräldern inte är villig att samarbeta, säger Julia Nusdorfer. Bara ca 30 procent av dessa fall klaras upp.

Det pågår ett internationellt lobbyarbete för att få fler länder att acceptera Haagkonventionen. Tidigare i år anslöt sig Ryssland, och nu verkar det som om Japan kommer att följa efter, efter åratal av påtryckningar från både USA och EU.

China Briefing: Kidnapping Attempts on Foreign Schoolkids in Beijing


Foreign schoolchildren are the potential new targets in child kidnapping cases following an incident at one of Beijing’s luxury compounds this past weekend.

On Saturday afternoon at approximately 4:30 p.m., the student was outside the side exit of the Yosemite Villa Estate and a man, unknown to her, came towards her and gave her a hug. She pushed him away but he then attempted to lift her up and drag her into his car. Fortunately a guard and a taxi driver stepped forward to help her and she safely returned home. The incident has been reported to the police for further investigation … The suspect is described as a 30-40 year old Chinese man of average height and build, short (buzz) haircut, frame-less glasses, wearing a dark-colored jacket and pants, and driving a small dark-colored car.

It’s not just children. There have been reported cases of kidnappers targeting women driving expensive cars. BJ is no different than any major city. Where I come from, car jacking is not unusual. You should always be on alert and pay attention to your surroundings.

Yes it is true and this is not the first time this happend. Young woman I know was attacked by a man in the city. She is rather tall and could get away but can tell you that she still “carries” it with her.
And another kidnap attempt happend near the Yashow. Her friend could help her and also there was a little van approaching them with open door.

It made me more allert and even it is a boy, still foreigner, my 14 year old boy is (was) not allowed to go to town in the evening or during day by himself by taxi. But now not even by himself in the neighbourhood. I know it must be possible to do so but I am very glad he understands my concerns and he deals with this without any comment. Only the idea that they take you child…
And I agree with Esther we all have to be allert why should this not happen in Beijing while it happens everywere else in the world.
It does not mean we must be scared to go out of the house but just be allert.

According to the China Briefing post, a few schools have issued warnings to parents and have offered some advice on what to do in such situations. Click here to read more.

Top Farc rebel leader Alfonso Cano killed in Colombia


Source: BBC

The leader of Colombia’s left wing Farc rebel group, Alfonso Cano, has been killed in a military raid, President Juan Manuel Santos has confirmed.

He called it the most devastating blow to the group in its decades-long insurgency and urged it to disband.

Defence Minister Juan Carlos Pinzon said Cano was killed in an operation in mountains in Colombia’s south-west.

Security forces have killed a number of Farc commanders and arrested many others in recent years. Giving details of the operation, Mr Pinzon said government forces first bombed a Farc jungle camp in Cauca state. Troops were then lowered from helicopters to search the area and killed Cano and several other Farc (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) members in a gun battle.

‘Prison or a tomb’

Pictures of the dead leader, with his trademark bushy beard shaved off, were broadcast on Colombian television.

“It is the most devastating blow that this group has suffered in its history,” President Santos said in a televised address.

“I want to send a message to each and every member of that organization: demobilise… or otherwise you will end up in a prison or in a tomb. We will achieve peace.”

Cano, 63, was reportedly tracked down to the jungle camp with the aid of telephone intercepts. Colombia had offered a reward of nearly $4m (£2.5m) for information leading to his capture.

map

Analysts say Cano’s death deals a further blow to the rebel group’s ability to co-ordinate attacks on security forces and other targets.

The Marxist-inspired Farc has already been weakened by a military offensive which began 10 years ago. Mr Cano, a former academic from Bogota, became the Farc’s leader in 2008 after his predecessor, Manuel Marulanda died of a heart attack. His real name was Guillermo Leon Saenz.

In July, he narrowly escaped a raid on his camp, Colombian officials said.

Alfonso Cano

  • Born 1948
  • Real name Guillermo Leon Saenz
  • Former academic from Bogota
  • Became Farc leader in 2008
  • Had been Colombian army’s main target in recent months

In September 2010, Mono Jojoy, another top Farc commander, was killed in a bombing raid.

The Colombian army also said earlier this year that it had killed Mr Cano’s head of security, Alirio Rojas Bocanegra.

The military has been able to expand its operations against the rebels with the help of the US, which has provided billions of dollars in funding, training and intelligence-sharing.

However, the Farc – the oldest and largest among Colombia’s left-wing rebel groups – retains the ability to mount hit-and-run attacks, partly owing to cash raised through its involvement in the illegal drugs trade and partly thanks to the country’s thick jungles.

The Farc is on US and European lists of terrorist organisations.

Colombia’s civil conflict has lasted more than four decades, drawing in left-wing rebels and right-wing paramilitaries.

Parental Abduction – How bad can it be?


Leading experts believe that due to the rapid growth in multi-national marriages and relationships, the number of children born from parents of different countries will continue to expand.

Similar to all relationships, a significant portion of these marriages or partnerships will end in divorce. All too often, one of the separating parents of the child of the relationship will seek to abduct the child to a country other than where the child has lived. This is called ‘International Parental Child Abduction’, and though there are various civil remedies available to targeted parents who have had their child abducted, the challenges they face are grave, and include first and foremost, locating where the child is located.
