Re GP (a child) (return order: habitual residence)

Minor – Removal outside jurisdiction. The judge had failed to consider in sufficient detail what was actually likely to happen to an 11-year-old girl on her return to Italy before reaching his conclusion on whether there was a grave risk that she would be exposed to psychological harm or otherwise placed in an intolerable situation, especially if her mother were imprisoned for her prior removal of the child. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the mother's appeal against the judge's decision ordering the child's return.
