Minor – Wrongful removal or retention. A father unsuccessfully appealed against the dismissal of his application for the summary return of his two children, aged 6 and 3 respectively, to Australia, under the Hague Child Abduction Convention 1980. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that, applying settled law to the facts, the deputy judge had been entitled to her conclusion that, at the date of the repudiatory retention by the mother, the children had been habitually resident in England and Wales.
