Facts of the case Applicant married Jordan man; he brought their child to live with family in Jordan. She obtained a UK court order, demanding him to return the child, but he left for Jordan.
Analysis Applicant wants UK authorities to actively ensure that her child is returned to her custody, but they have only adviced her on attracting a Jordan lawyer to enforce the UK court order on Jordan’s territory and have informed her about the well-being of the child. The Commission stresses that no more can be done by the UK.
