Daughter wrongfully retained

by ak / Posted 22/12/2008 / Updated 19/09/2015

Hi
This is an intresting concept, my daughter was taken on holiday in june for 2 months with my consent, and they haven´t come back, the mother said it was always her intension to go back to her country. but this week she came back for a civil court hearing that has been on going for 5 years, i found out when and where she was and informed the police. as she has abducted my daughter. the police took statements and check everything with the cps and today 22nd dec @ 9am she was arrested. she was interviewed and admitted everything and confirm my statement. she was guilty!!! the police checked with the cps and there responce was ´it is highly unlikly to get a conviction´ let her go, no further action. where is the justice, genda bias?? public money on court hearing?? fathers really have no rights?? what is going on

AK, sorry to hear that your daughter has been taken away by, of all people, a person who is supposed to love you. Fathers indeed have few to no rights. I believe the CPS and the law by-and-large support mothers. Rarely are fathers put first ... result of an archaic system imposed by judges that are equally unwilling to enact justice. So do not look for justice in the law. May I suggest you file all relevant Hague papers sooner rather than later to stand a chance of getting back your child. Reunite will undoubtedly help. ac

I hear what u saying, but I am a mother and the same thing happened to me with the police , my partner was on bail 4 times even though he has admitted to my Son´s adbuction, u just have to say that CPS are useless, and the police drop all reported crimes especially child abduction from the UK because they deemed it too difficult to snare the culprit. so the legal system is old, the CPS doesn´t know what they are doing and don´t start me on the police.... so my advice to u is keep on asking for your rights and ur childs rights until u get an answer and don´t believe what anyone are trying to insinuate that mothers have more rights than fathers!!!!! there is no justice that´s all, u as a father and myself and other parents can have this changed if we do enough to tell authorities that they are getting it wrong. How? I don´t know but I am sure working on it. contact me if u r interested.

Hi AK,
Do not be put off just because the CPS have decided not to prosecute. They do sometimes get things wrong and it may be possible to get them to reconsider. Also which country is involved? If its Hague then how far have the proceedings gone. Ask Reunite to pass my details to you and make contact. I will try to assist and get the result you are looking for.

AK, did you know where the mother was, her exact address? Did you try to get your daughter back home ( through the court)? What was she "guilty!!!" of? Why was she interviewed by CPS? What were the allegations. It is hard to prove that she has abducted the child, especially if it appears to the police that you acquiesced. You did give permission for her to leave but did she tell you when she was going to return. Did you see a return ticket? These things can work against you. To me, it sounds as if the burden was on you to prove that she was guilty of something and you did not. Just because someone gets arrested and is interviewed by CPS that does not mean that they are ´guilty´ of allegations brought agaisnt them.What was the ´everything´ that she admitted? Did she tell you that she was not going to return? You must have strong, strong evidence for CPS investigators. And why would they press on with a case that they know they would not win. They are not in the habit of running parents through the courts to embarrass them or make their lives miserable to the delight of an angry partner.

Hi Nick, are you still a round as its been a longtime since your post, would you be in a position to help me as I´ve just started The Hague process to return my wrongfully detained son from Poland and I´m lost about this and life in general :(
