Marianne Haslev Skånland:

Important court verdict in England at last SUPPORTS freedom of info in CPS cases

A fine new year present for all of us comes here! :

From September of this year -
The video judges tried to block: Father secretly records harrowing moment six-hour-old baby is taken away by social services
MailOnline, 5/6 September 2013

A father has recorded on video social workers taking away their newborn child. He has been given a 6 months suspended prison sentence because he has refused to remove the video from the internet, but has now got a freeing verdict from a judge of another calibre, Sir James Munby. The video can now be shown quite legally. It can be accessed in the MailOnline article.

Hopefully, it looks like more people in Britain are in the process of waking up and protesting the utterly harmful social politicies of social workers, politicians and administrative boards and councils. We must look forward to the first trials and prison sentences for all who take part in the atrocities.

Suranya Aiyar in India was the one to discover this article and send a link. In addition to her presentation earlier this year of
Guidelines for CWCs under POCSO (excellent principles which she and others are now working to have entered into Indian legislation), she now, with this article in MailOnline as a starting point, takes the initiative to have a forum for several developing countries established to combat child "protection" the way it is practiced in the West:

The Indian government should convene a forum with other developing countries to protest Western child confiscation practices as a humanitarian issue. These stories are not the result of mistakes in a system but of a mistaken, brutal system that ignores the inhumanity of taking children away from their parents. Child removal is no answer to families in trouble. And it would appear that many families, such as this one, targeted by child protection services do not pose any harm to the child but merely need help either owing to special needs in the child or parent or owing simply to poverty.
