From comments to this article:
There doesn’t seem to be an end to the agony and trauma of the parents or that of the poor children. This paints a really black picture of Norway.
Clearly, Norwegian Authorities are determined to make it as difficult as possible for the children to be back in India. There is no doubt. It will be many years before the children actually get back to India. The Norwegian government will throw every legal hurdle to make it impossible for the children to be back in India and united with their family in India.
Even two British nurses condemned to death in Saudi Arabia for murder, WERE SENT BACK TO BRITAIN ON ITS REQUEST, to be dealt with according to its laws. Norway must not revive the Inquisition’s approach.
The attachment disorder has been caused by the Norway CPS itself. A look on the wikipedia page for attachment disorder tells us that it is caused by separating the child from his or her caregivers between the age of 6 months to 3 years. In such a case the Norway cps itself should be sued for child abuse.
The CWS now says the boy has attachment disorder. But when he is forcibly taken away from his parents, is he not bound to be homesick? How does that become a disorder? It is becoming continuously disgusting to read about the developments of this case, with the way the Norwegians are handling it, or rather, more accurately put, mishandling it. They better realise that they are become a subject of mockery.
This should taken up by the parents (supported by government and fellow Indians) in the European Court of Human Rights. I am sure a public campaign launched in Norway against the detention of the kids and separating from their Indian parents would attract empathy and even support. This is a human right issue now.
Attachment disorder is a broad term intended to describe disorders of mood, behavior, and social relationships arising from a failure to form normal attachments to primary care giving figures in early childhood, resulting in problematic social expectations and behaviors. Such a failure would result from unusual early experiences of neglect, abuse, abrupt separation from caregivers after about six months of age but before about three years of age, frequent change of caregivers or excessive numbers of caregivers, or lack of caregiver responsiveness to child communicative efforts. Shouldn’t the Norway government be made responsible of contributing to the child’s present condition and future repercussions?
I think there is enough information on this case and the Norwegian “Child Protection” System about the following –
1. The children are citizens of India.
2. The reasons for taking the children away have not been disclosed by the Norwegian authorities.
3. The reasons for taking the children away and the legal documents of the case have been released by the family to a Norwegian journalist.
4. The reasons for this action by the Norwegian “child care” authorities are baseless and mendacious.
5. Every year thousands of children are taken away from their parents in Norway on similar flimsy grounds.
6. The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child has criticized Norway for this state-sponsored kidnapping.
7. The Norwegian “child care” system gives employment to thousands of unemployable workers. That is the sole reason for the existence of the system.
The parents haven’t been charged with a crime.
The legality of this whole case is indeed questionable, and if the Indian government persists in its efforts to retrieve the stolen children, the only country to lose face is Norway. Judging by the reports of Russian, Polish, Sri Lankan and other children being stolen by the Norwegians, it is high time this racket got exposed.
