Group discussing international kidnapping of children defines strategies

Monday, October 16, 2006

Was held today (16) at the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF) a meeting of the Standing Group of Studies of the Convention on Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. Brazil is represented at the Hague Convention by the group, which is composed of representatives of the Judiciary, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the General Law of the Union.

The group discussed with the president of the l Supreme Court (STF), Justice Ellen Gracie, the format of the seminar that will be held in Brasilia on December 4 and 5, when Brazilian legal operators should be informed about what will have been decided in the meeting on the Hague Convention between 29 October and 9 November.

The coordinator of the group, federal judge Jorge Antônio Maurique, said that many hours of work were dedicated to the closing of the text with the comments that will be presented by Brazil. "Seven motions were proposed as a resolution for the revision of the convention on the issue of kidnapping of children of national interest".

Maurique pointed out that one of them, the version of all documents for the portuguese language, will enable the convention to be known by more than two hundred million people, the population of the member countries of the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP).

The draft of the convention-specific website in Brazil was also presented, which will have links to doctrine, jurisprudence, suggestions and the "push system", which will provide the foreign authorities with the follow-up of the processes in the country.
