Re C (children) (abduction: physical or psychological harm)

Abduction – Child. The appellant father was successful in his appeal against the judge's decision to dismiss his application for the return of his two children to South Africa, pursuant to the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction 1980. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in allowing the appeal, held that the evidence had not supported the judge's conclusions on which he had based his determination that article 13(b) had been established, and the judge had failed to analyse the nature and degree of any risk based on the situation, as it would be for the children, in the future.
