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

  Pavel Telička (ALDE), in writing. ‒ The Hague Convention (1980) on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction is a vitally important instrument, ratified by all EU Member States. The Convention created a cooperative system between the signatory states with the goal of resolving cases of international child abduction. Most often, reports of child abduction are the result of a couple separating, where the mother and father are from different states. States often are unwilling or unable to cooperate with one another during instances of child abduction as a result of national bias of differing legal systems. Parents frequently exploit these legal and judicial disparities in order to secure full custody of the child in a particular state. I voted in favour of the accession of Kazakhstan so that child abduction at the international level can be resolved through the competent courts of the state of residence of the child.
