Accession of Kazakhstan to the 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction (A8-0268/2016 - Angel Dzhambazki)

  Therese Comodini Cachia (PPE), in writing. ‒ This is an important instrument which has been ratified by all the EU Member States, providing protection for the interest of those children who are victims of abduction. The Convention introduces a system of cooperation between the contracting states for cases where jurisdictions declare themselves competent, with each of them awarding custody of the child to the parent who is a national of their state. The Convention also introduces a system which ensures the immediate return of children who have been abducted. Following the accession of Kazakhstan to the Convention, a Council decision is therefore necessary to authorise the Member States, with some exceptions, to accept that accession. This will allow the Convention to enter into force between Kazakhstan and the entire European Union.
