The Family Law Reform Association (FLRA) are running an information night on 7th May on this important subject with KEN THOMPSON as the guest speaker.
Following the abduction of his son to Europe in 2008, Ken has become an expert on International Parental Child Abduction (IPCA) and the Hague Convention. Currently, IPCA is only a crime when parenting matters are before the Family Court of Australia or when a Parenting Order is already in place. Ken has given evidence before a Senate Inquiry into IPCA and is working towards IPCA being included as a general offence under the Crimes Act, whether or not Parenting matters are before the Family Court of Australia. He will be happy to answer any questions at the end of his presentation.
In recognition of his efforts to find his son and to raise international awareness about IPCA, Ken was named 2011 Father of the Year in The Netherlands.
Newspaper reports on this abduction case have previously been published on this site. Ken is the Father that cycled around Europe searching for his Son.
