These photos are what is left of a family destroyed by Haringey Council – the worst that we had accompanied in terms of
- number of children taken: first 5, then 1 at birth in hospital and the last in HMP Holloway – next to US mother Melissa Laird who witnessed the ‘snatch’;
- the secrecy of the family courts to ‘gag’ the parents and commit them to prison;
- the authorities’ willingness to commit crimes to cover-up crimes;
- the ultimate cover-up in a criminal court.
You can’t make up what UK authorities get up to for the sake of organised child abuse.
Eventually, the parents got deported to Nigeria. And nobody knows what has happened to their children. The two youngest were given up for ‘forced adoption’, i.e. WITHOUT the consent of the parents, the campaign of Ian Josephs for over 50 years and our petition to the EU Parliament.
Will we achieve a change in law so that adoptions can be reversed? That children can be returned from foster care? For how many was their stay truly “in their best interest”???
This report about Social Services in Europe calls practices in the UK ‘abusive’ and refers to the irreversibility of forced adoptions in the English/Welsh law as a ‘flaw’.
