His mother and grandmother fled the father’s persecutions in Lithuania, but he was forcibly removed by Brent Police on 23 September 2013;
Social Services failed to investigate the father’s medical and criminal records;
HHJ Million gave residence of the boy to the father, contrary to a judgement of the Lithuanian Supreme Court. His judgement twists reality and evidence in a way that turns black into white and white into black. Unfortunately, the mother has reached a state of mind that makes her incapable of presenting the case, let alone appeal it appropriately.
When refusing permission to appeal Justice McFarlane said “This is not the end of the road for the boy.” But who will make sure that he WON’T be handed over by Brent Social Services???
After an accusation by the oldest son which he retracted, the father was arrested and all children were removed on 23 April 2013 by 2 Social Workers and Lincolnshire Police – under Emergency Police Protection Orders.
The oldest son wrote desperate letters to the judge fearing ‘bum rape’ by the Social Worker, but HHJ Simler wouldn’t admit a question in court relating to this violation of the UN Convention of Child Rights which the UK has ratified.
In the secrecy of family courts, she decided that all children need to be put into permanent care and the two youngest ones ought to be adopted.
The parents’ desperate attempts to get their children back eventually led to negotiations with Portuguese authorities on 17 April 2014. But they have not been handed over to a Portuguese institution, as agreed. Instead, the siblings have been separated and two of them are supposed to be adopted. Lincolnshire Council have still not sent copies of the Minutes of the meeting either. Furthermore, the parents are treated as criminals for their contact sessions every two months.
Who cares about this American boy who has not seen his mother since 12 December 2011, when he was 4 and snatched by Barnet Council?
Having assisted American mother Melissa Laird whilst in HMP Holloway, we tried to ensure that she gets the oral hearing that had been scheduled to take place on 05 December 2013.
This is to report a crime against a Lithuanian boy who was forcefully removed from his mother and grandmother, after they escaped his father’s persecutions in Lithuania – despite a judgement in the mother’s favour of the Supreme Court. Fortunately, the mother recorded the removal on video.
Unfortunately, however, Brent Social Services and HHJ Million operate in the father’s interests rather than those of the boy who needs to be protected from his ‘red banana’, as he calls it which we attach and publish on www.audrone.wordpress.com. Continue reading →
First,Melissa Laird had a hearing scheduled for 05 December 2013.
But despite our efforts of trying to get her signature out of HMP Holloway, she got deported on 12 September 2013. And the hearing on 05 December 2013 was hijacked by the Treasury Solicitor to get the case ‘disposed’ of.
We, as her McKenzie Friends, argued that a Skype connection should be arranged so that she can represent herself.
Legal professionals are paid by the number of pages they produce and read.
We are ‘amateurs’, i.e. fuelled by love and passion, learning as we go along.
This learning exercise around the kidnap of Melissa Laird‘s son by Barnet Council and the dumping of the US mother on a wheelchair by the Home Office ends, for the moment, with a hearing tomorrow morning. We printed the seven documents in the photo – for ourselves, the judge and the other side.
Due to the busy diary of the private barrister employed by the Treasury Solicitor’s Office, the hearing has to take place at 9.30. It could not be adjourned, even though
we were not present at the hearing when the cost order was made for £2,000 and £600;
our Application Notice – prepared by a Star McKenzie Advisor and filed on 22 April – requests the transcript of the hearing in paragraph 15;
I sent nine emails between 15 April and 02 June asking various parties for the transcript;
Belinda did not get a letter telling her about this hearing on 04 June;
Belinda McKenzie says she’s willing to go to prison to set a sign for the inappropriateness of us being financially penalised for doing pro bono work.
I am beginning to be amused when I read another McKenzie Friend writing about a farce by pink elephants! But when I emailed the Admin Court this morning, I was full of the ‘wrath of god’. It’s just too ridiculous to be taken seriously:
Dear Mr Chowdhury et al,
I have just received two letters dated 22 and 23 May respectively and I have two others of 19 May and 23 May. Altogether, they regard three hearings:
on 23/05/2014 for 0 minutes [the letter announcing this is dated 22 May!]
on 04/06/2014 for 45 minutes
on 25/06/2014 for 30 minutes.
As I am in temporary accommodation while health and safety works are being carried out in my flat, the redirection delays my mail. Despite that, I find it impossible to make sense of this way of wasting the court’s time.
