S (a child) (Hague Convention 1980: return to third state)

Minor – Abduction. In allowing the respondent father to take a child, A, to a third state, Hungary, the judge had insufficiently examined in concrete terms the situation which would exist in Hungary, in particular in respect of jurisdiction. His conclusion that the respondent father's undertakings were effective was not supported by his reasoning. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the appellant mother's appeal and dismissed the application made by the father pursuant to the Hague Child Abduction Convention 1980.
