Re H (a child) (international abduction: asylum and welfare)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the mother's appeal from a decision ordering the child A be returned to Pakistan accompanied by her. The court found that the fact that there was an asylum claim (which was subsequently granted) in respect of both the mother and A, meant that there ought to have been more enquiry by the court into the various circumstances of the case before any orders were made or enforced.
