Child abduction permitted BY Germany

Germany legalises international child abduction
Below is a letter in German advising that the investigation against the mother of my children for international child abduction to Germany has been closed with the permission of the court.
Although the court recognises that a crime has been committed it is of so little importance that it is not in the public (national) interest to pursue the matter further.
This is the heart of the problem when facing child abductions to Germany.
Under German law child abduction can result in a jail sentence of up to ten years, but when children are abducted to Germany it is not in the national interest to pursue the matter this is also no doubt why the terms of the UN rights of the child and the Hague agreements are not honoured by Germany.
On the other hand only a few months ago a grandmother and grandfather of Yugoslavian origin now German resident were jailed for three and two years respectively for assisting their son to abduct his daughter out of Germany. It would appear that there are two yard sticks by which Germany operates, a situation that can no longer be tolerated by the many thousand foreign parents who are suffering the same fate as me and my children.
Please do something today about making this situation known to the whole of the civilised world.
