Re A, B, C and F (Children)

Children and young persons – Jurisdiction. The Family Division held that where there had been wrongful retention by the father of the children in Somalia that wrongful retention did not change the fact that the children had habitual residence in the United Kingdom and therefore the courts of England and Wales had jurisdiction in regard to an application to return the children to the UK having regard to Council Regulation (EC) 2201/2003.
