  1. I hope that this Conference will help to successfully counter and fully expose the underlying problem that underpins the UK child snatching scandal: that of the dishonest use of falsely
    procured and bogus “court orders”, issued by the County Councils themselves – ‘in house’ and NOT held on record at the Family Division of the High Court nor the Principal Registry!
    i.e. I have first-hand evidence that there are FALSE DOCUMENTS which purport to be “Court orders” being used in the UK SECRET Courts, where in fact NO RECORD of the case files exist at the court. A court with no records is no court at all!
    The shocking implications of this fraudulent but widespread deceptive practice are far-reaching, involving unashamed but illegal RACKETEERING. It means that there is NO DUE PROCESS of Law, and it PREVENTS / prohibits “fair hearings” because any Applications that are made by the oppressed parent/s or their advocates, will have no audience because Applications can not be filed anywhere in a Court of no record!
    Does this help to throw any light on why Paedo Britain has been getting away with trampling on the rights of vulnerable children and their mothers? It is a dishonest and oppressive REGIME, or which many UK politicians are major participants.

    The comment of one voice group is both interesting and disturbing, I trust Sabine has read it or will do so soon. Court dates permitting I will attend the conference myself and also invite a Czech lawyer friend and representatives of a Czech family who have lost their son/grandson to the Uk care system.

    IT happens not only in UK. My niece is taken away in France, and kept without any news to family since 2013 11 12. I am a Lithuanian lawyer, and I also work with children cases, I help mothers to get children back home. Our embassy, our Prosecutor office, our police, and our Children office haven’t done anything since January. I have written to our President, I will look, what she will say, as our embassy in France firs in February didn’t answer and didn’t do anything, and now after I have applied to…France embassy in Lithuania – as Lithuania do nothing about our case – now this embassy wrote that will try to find girl, but police also could work, they write. Everybody push the responsibility for the girl to another institution, and the central Chilnder institution even didn’t call or write to France, to really find a girl!!! And the police didn’t want. They write, that our girl is under protection of France. But she is Lithuanian citizen. Kristina Sulikiene

    • Yes, it’s an international network of criminals that is better organised than we are! But the UK is at the origin and worst because of its private schooling where homosexuality starts and emotionally damaged boys get educated to become the ‘elite’…

      You may want to look at for Lithuanian connections… Unfortunately, the mother doesn’t see ‘straight’ any more. And the father MUST have ‘paedo clout’ with Social Services! You can find her on Facebook.

        Lithuanian secret services have very close tights not only to Italian mafia and secret services, but also to all secret services in the world, also to UK, and Irelands, so that I believe what you say. I haven’t heard about conecctions with France, but in my case the link between Lithuania and France is also obvious. To hide the truth for already 10 months it is unbelievable,,,

    Sulikiene, I would like to know more about your niece taken away in France. I am also studying the child protection issue in France and could actually put the child parents in contact with parents defense associations there. Not sure about the rule on this blog, if I am allowed to give you my email ?
