(Family Division, Theis J, 15 May 2020)

Abduction – Hague Convention – Article 13(b)

The Family Division held that the issues raised did not meet the threshold in Article 13(b) and the protective measures agreed would be able to mitigate any harm. The court ordered that the son should return to Australia, on a date to be fixed once current travel restrictions were lifted.
