BRUSSELS was only the beginning: a Battle FOR Children – AGAINST Forced Adoptions & Deportations

Sabine Kurjo McNeill:

If only anybody knew exact statistics about children taken, abused and dying in care… Let alone all those whose parents are being deported – just like Melissa…

In the same meeting, I presented the petition Abolish Adoptions without Parental Consent on behalf of all children taken into ‘care’ by Local Authorities in the UK:

Seven Action Points were expressed by the Chairperson and Committee Members:

The Minutes are enshrined here and include these decisions:

  • re individual petitions: petitions to be kept open. Letters would be sent to the municipal and national authorities in the Member States involved to invite them to give their reactions to the allegations made by the petitioners and to…

MUNBY REFORM continues: Local Councils must inform foreign authorities and provide consular visits

Paul Randle-Jolliffe is not a member of our Association, but has assisted the Nigerian Musas long before we helped them. He now addresses Haringey Council with this Open Letter.

He publishes Non-UK Children taken into Care on 42 pages with these references:

  • 63 foreign children taken and 4 adopted by Lincoln Council
  • 231 taken and 8 adopted by Barnet Council – one of them being Melissa Laird‘s son
  • 20 taken and 2 adopted by Doncaster Council – responsible for Vicky Haigh and her daughter
  • 15 taken and 2 adopted by Swansea Council – who gagged me first, before Doncaster and Haringey.

Based on Sir James Munby’s judgement regarding a 12-year old Slovak boy, Paul spells out the following:

  • Councils have to abide by Articles 36 and 37b…

SEASON’S GREETINGS from Melissa in Washington while her son is kept by Barnet Council

Season’s Greetings!

Hope all is well whereever you are!

I would have sent some e-cards but trying to save money to buy a mattress and base along with bedding but I am trying to get ahead with the rent first. The good thing is I am inside and not out in the snow and cold. I have one thin blanket and as the flat is a bit cold I see in my chair in the bath room as it is the warmest place until I get a heater on Friday. I found it second hand for $5 on the internet that someone is selling. With any luck that will help. Overall I am doing better. I am walking be it only 600 yards but better than nothing. I don’t use the chair in the flat except to sleep on/in.

I am waiting for the bank to sort things out and send out a new card so I can access my money. They did said I would take a few weeks but I know that it will take a bit longer due to the holidays. Nevertheless onwards and upwards is the only thing to be done. Continue reading

YOU NEED to Establish Your Right to Represent Melissa!

13 12 12 OrderDo I need to curse my logical mind?

Is Mathematical Woman too precise for Legal Man?

Well, I suppose I shouldn’t publish my thinking here, but make a ‘renewed submission’…

At least we’re learning how professionals keep themselves – and each other – busy all – for taxpayers’ money.

 

Anyway, this is ‘the news’ or the ‘outcome’ – in black on white – of the hearing of 05 December 2013.

 

#LSEJackson: unique tweet opportunity after “It’s NOT SAFE to dispose of the matter”!

12 07 25 AuthorityThis morning, in Court 18 of the Royal Courts of Justice, I delivered the message that Melissa had sent via Skype – on paper. I asked the usher whether there is a connection so that she could talk to the Judge on Skype. Apparently that is possible only in one court.

I mentioned this to HHJ Anthony Elleray QC as it was not clear to him ‘on paper’ whether

  • we have the ‘right and ability’ to represent the Claimant
  • even though we had submitted and paid for two Notices of Renewal and an Application for Revocation
  • we are apparently not on the court record – because CLP Solicitors had not removed themselves properly [how are we supposed to know that their email was NOT sufficient?]
  • even though the Claimant Melissa has given us the full legal authority, does she really want us to represent her in these proceedings – after CLP Solicitors had initiated the Judicial Review? Continue reading

COURT 8, 10.30am – hijacking the agenda for ‘disposal’ – not addressing the substance of her case

I find it very hard to make sense of a world that has clearly gone off its rails but claims to operate “in the best interests” of children in general and Melissa’s then 4-year old child who last saw his mum 2 years ago in Spain.

  1. 13 08 16 Removal Refused p1We got a hearing scheduled for 05 December – to address the ‘substance of the case’, to exercise her rights of appeal and generally have a ‘fair trial’ a la Human Rights Article 6.
  2. Melissa gets deported – despite our efforts – and is still homeless.
  3. The Treasury Solicitor makes an application to get this matter disposed of.
  4. The Admin Court lists ‘Laird’ as one of 5 ‘disposals’:

Where is our application?

Well, I may not have a robe and a wig, but I do have a brain. I shall make sure it’s going to be ‘in gear’ tomorrow! And I have McKenzie Friends who advise me. One of them suggested to contact the Delivery Director and ask for explanations.

The #unethical #wombscandal tells the whole Nation that something is very wrong, at least in Essex Council! Continue reading
