International Parental Child Abduction – Stephen Watkins Story – CAN YOU HELP?


September 2, 2013

CAN YOU HELP?

Please post some comments below – I am seriously thinking of riding my bike from Toronto to Ottawa to raise funds and deliver our first Law Resolution proposal from up to 8 law proposals.

Stephen Watkins

I am doing this to help raise funds for the enormous legal costs associated with Parental Child Abductions which there is NO financial assistance provided to families by the Canadian government and to help bring my two sons, Alexander and Christopher Watkins, home who were internationally abducted to Poland in 2009.

This is a big thing for me to accomplish as I am a big guy and not exactly fit. Its not the sort of thing you would expect of a parent who is fighting to return home their abducted children. Poland may have broken up to 5 International treaties between Canada in not returning my Canadian sons and our Canadian government is doing nothing about it to enforce the treaties against other countries that have signed but that are not following the international treaties and conventions.

It feels like the Canadian government believes that its the responsibility its own Canadian citizens to uphold our international agreements that our own previous Canadian governments have signed throughout the years. It feels that it is left upon the shoulders of a regular Canadian parent to take other countries to courts themselves to prove that other countries are in breach of not following international treaties and conventions rather then the Canadian government’s responsibility to get involved themselves and enforce our agreements to bring home our abducted children.

I plan to take the country of Poland to the EU courts to show evidence that the Polish justice system failed to follow up to 5 international treaties and conventions to get and “Order for Return” of my two abducted sons who are “Wards” of the country of Poland as the Polish Courts have removed the parental rights of the abducting mother due to child protection concerns prior to notifying Canadian authorities of the boys location.

Canada’s Foreign Affairs have communicated that abducted Canadian children have never been “Wards” of another country after an International Kidnapping. The abducting mother is on Canada’s RCMP Most Wanted list and the Canadian government has issued a world-wide Interpol “Red Notice” for her arrest. After two-and-a-half years, the Canadian Criminal courts have ruled a GUILTY verdict for the abducting mother and her father, the children’s grandfather living in Canada, was sentenced by the Canadian Courts.

This has set precedence here in Canada. Intentional Child Abductions affects so many families in Canada. A group of affected parents and myself are working together in a group formed called the iCHAPEAU Association working towards creating Canada’s iCHAPEAU Act. I have NO idea how I can accomplish this bike journey so I am learning from other events posted online, such as “The Ontario Ride to Conquer Cancer”, who have incorporated biking in their causes. Hoping to make connections with others online who know how to train, plan such a bike journey and help in this fundraising event. If you can help, contact me through the iCHAPEAU either online or on Facebook. Thanks!

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?

Abducted to Poland: Stephen Watkins at rally for his sons at Polish embassy in Toronto

Stephen Watkins children was illegally abducted to Poland, The black hole of child abduction – A non co-operating member of the Hague convention.

A Polish court has denied a Newmarket man’s bid to bring home his two children, according to the man’s Facebook page.
Stephen Watkins accuses his ex-wife Edyta Watkins (Ustaszewski) of abducting their two boys, Alexander and Christopher, in 2009.


Mr. Watkins wrote in a Facebook post last night he is not feeling well in the aftermath of yesterday’s ruling.
“I am frustrated along with being very sad. I don’t know what to say except that I am not giving up on my sons.” he wrote, adding he plans to appeal the ruling.

In advance of the ruling, Mr. Watkins acknowledged his uphill climb to secure custody of the boys was far from over.
“One thing is finding your kids, it’s another thing bringing them home,” Mr. Watkins said by telephone Wednesday from Warsaw, Poland, where has been since Nov. 23.
Mr. Watkins has seen Alexander and Christopher at an apartment building in the eastern European country, but has been unable to hug them, he said.
They seem confused and Mr. Watkins believes they have been brainwashed.
The long road from family difficulties. which began 2-1/2 years ago, to receiving word about the children through Polish court documents last summer has been emotionally taxing and financially burdensome, he admits.
“The Polish courts have known where my kids are for about a year,” he charged. “It took them a year to contact me.”
After his children disappeared, his ex-wife attempted to enrol them at a Polish school. But with no documentation about their boys’ background, Polish authorities apparently became suspicious and launched an investigation, which landed in the courts, Mr. Watkins believes.
Then, the Polish courts sent Mr. Watkins a summons.
“That was our first lead,” he said.
He was glad to know where his sons were, but his research had taught him not to get too excited, he added.


The boys were reported missing the Monday following a scheduled weekend visit with their mother.
After Mr. Watkins was granted custody of the boys, United States Homeland Security confirmed a woman and two boys took a flight from Rochester, N.Y. to Detroit, Mich. March 8, 2009 before departing for Frankfurt, Germany.
From there, the trio apparently entered Poland.


Mrs. Watkins is a native of Poland and has family there. The boys could also be recognized as Polish citizens, Canadian authorities said.
Because Canada has no extradition treaty with Poland, Mr. Watkins has faced an uphill battle.
He thanked several local support agencies, York Regional Police and Canadian officials in Poland for their help and acknowledged members of Parliament have spoken on his behalf.

Earlier this week, Newmarket-Aurora Conservative MP Lois Brown issued a news release stating she had discussed Mr. Watkins’ efforts in the House of Commons during discussion about a government initiative to help protect Canadian children travelling abroad.
However, Mr. Watkins believes only pressure from the highest levels of the Canadian government — the Prime Minister’s Office — will help pressure the Polish government.
“My fingers are crossed that (Prime Minister) Stephen Harper will stand up and say something,” he said. “I need some of that political clout.”
In advance of the court ruling, Mr. Watkins didn’t hold his hopes high and was skeptical of a major change in the situation.
“My ex has gone to great lengths to travel around the world … and hide the children,” he said.

“I would like to thank the Canadian politicians LOIS BROWN, MP (Newmarket-Aurora) and JINNY SIMS, NDP PM (Newton-North Delta BC) for raising awareness to the Canadian government of my sons International Child Abduction case, known world-wide as ‘ Watkins Missing Children ‘, in Canada’s House of Commons and also raising awareness to the issues of International Parental Child Abductions from Canada.

I am hopping and my ‘Christmas Wish’ is that our Canadian Prime Minister, STEPHEN HARPER, also send an equally strong message and statement denouncing the actions of Poland with my two Canadian children, illegally kidnapped from Canada and now stuck in Poland.

I believe it will take a strong statement from our Canadian political leader seeking the return of my sons, similarly to what the United States – Secretary HILLARY CLINTON has done denouncing the inactions of Brazil and Japan in similar child abduction cases, so that the country of Poland understands that International Child Abductions will not be tolerated by any nation.” says Stephen Watkins, the father of Missing / Abducted Alexander & Christopher Watkins.”
