13 Petitions lead to a Plenary Debate on Wednesday 27 April 2016, 6 – 7pm UK time

Protecting the best interest of the child (across borders) in Europe[1] is on the agenda of the next Plenary Debate in Brussels on Wednesday 27 April.

The debate stems from the complaint of twelve individual petitioners regarding their children’s loss of mother tongue and their abusive placement with foster carers, as well as from the petition by the Association of McKenzie Friends requesting the Abolition of Adoptions without Parental Consent[2]. The debate will cover Questions with Oral Answer:

  • to the EU Council[3] – the Ministers of all 28 Member States;
  • and the EU Commission[4] – the administration in the background of elected Parlamentarians;
  • as well as a Motion for a Resolution[5] on safeguarding the best interests of the child across the EU on the basis of petitions addressed to the EU Parliament.

With 5,700 signatures online, petition 1707/2013 [6] was first presented in Brussels on 19 March 2014[7] by a delegation of 30 parents. The trip resulted in this article in The Telegraph:

16 04 19 Fact Finding ReportThen, eight MEPs came to London on a fact finding visit[10] on 5 November 2015. They voted on the final version of their 15-page report[11] at the last meeting of the Petitions Committee on Tuesday 19 April.

Here[12] are their recommendations to the UK Government.

And here[13] is an analysis of the report, based on the experience of hundreds of cases, in addition to the 13 petitions under scrutiny by the MEPs.

The Council of Europe[14] that unites Parliamentarians of 47 European member countries has produced two related reports:

in 2012: Human rights and family courts[15] – written by Christopher Chope MP from the UK:

  • “The Parliamentary Assembly is concerned about the functioning of family courts in some member States of the Council of Europe, and especially about cases where children are taken away against the will of their parents and in violation of the right to respect for family life and the principle of a fair trial.”

16 04 25 CoEin 2015: When is it ok to remove a child from her or his birth family?[16] was produced by DUMA member Olga Borzova and called some of the practices that are standard in the UK “abusive”.

  • “Children have the right to be protected from all types of violence, abuse and neglect. But children also have the right not to be separated from their parents against their will, except when the competent authorities determine that such separation is necessary for the best interests of the child.”

  1. I agree 100% with this approach. This is what is needed {approach the MEPs because, no one is being listened to in the UK}. A robust complete investigation into this appalling atrocity against innocent dedicated Parents. This needs exposing far and wide as it is “wholly unacceptable and deeply distressing”. I enjoyed both Ms. Mc. Neil’s and Mr. Josephs’s speeches on Saturday 23rd April in London. One only wonders what the Queen knows about Human Rights when her Courts shows no respect to us distressed Families even though we ratified the Conventions’ Rights in 1998. A leading Barrister {Mr. Singh} a few months ago did state “There is No Human Rights in the UK” and he is RIGHT! I am looking forward the result of the MEP’s Findings on 27th April into this scandalous corruption {Child Snatching and permanent Parent Alienation}.
