… Lord Judge said: “The abduction of children from a loving parent is an offence of unspeakable cruelty to the loving parent and to the child or children, whatever they may later think of the parent from whom they have been estranged as a result of the abduction.” …
Comment by #wco: I whole heartedly agree with this quote from Lord Judge.
However the removal of contact with children from a loving Non Resident Parent is an offence of unspeakable cruelty to the loving parent and to the child or children too. All too often the “system” appears to forget that the reason so many NRP’s end up in court is precisely because of this “unspeakable cruelty” which is ignored by the Family Court system and the trauma endured to even get to court far certainly (in the words of Lord Judge) ‘does not meet “true justice”, especially for the other “loving parent”‘.
This tragic abuse of child and Non Resident Parent should be treated as seriously as Lord Judge says, with punishment for the Parent With Care, and their collaborators including “care” agencies & legal teams, that inflicts this systematic and “unspeakable cruelty”
