Good news! After a preliminary investigation National Ombudsman Marc Dullaert announced today that he will take on Jasmijn’s case!
The following facts and proposals that my attorney Ariane Hendriks and I have presented in our meeting with him on December 18th, 2015 will be considered:
- despite expert evidence of child abuse, child molestation and severe neglect at the hands of the father Dave H submitted to the Hague Court by State Youth Mental Health Clinic GGNet Jeugd (henceforward named GGNet Jeugd).
- despite the fact that child therapist Kathryn Carter in Texas noted child abuse and molestation
- despite the recommendation by the Hague Court’s own independent psychologist that not even supervised contact should take place between Dave H and Jasmijn.
- despite the fact that Dave H admitted to the court that he has a severe drug addiction to heroin and cocaine.
- despite the fact that Jasmijn testified about the molestation and abuse in The Hague Lower Court as well as in The Hague Appellate Court and showed strong resistance against contact with her father.
- despite the fact that Jasmijn had been hospitalized due to refusal to eat after being notified of the fact that the Lower Court had ordered her return to the USA and mental health professionals had alerted the Court of her suicidal and homicidal feelings.
- Judges Bellaart, van Steen, Dragtsma, Mink, Stille en Lückers broke their own Hague Convention Treaty because they did not implement article 13 of that Hague Convention Treaty
- Dutch Child Protective Services, also known as the “Raad van de Kinderbescherming” (henceforward named RvdK) admitted that at the time of the deportation it had not informed itself about Jasmijn’s case at all. The Dutch CPS (RvdK) admitted that they did not even know about the expert evidence of child abuse and child molestation by the father Dave H as reported extensively by the multi-disciplinary team of GGNet Jeugd throughout a 10 month-long investigation. The Dutch CPS (RvdK) admitted that they did not meet with the expert team at GGNet Jeugd before deciding to participate in the deportation of Jasmijn. As such the Dutch CPS (RvdK) acted as the extension of the DA (Openbaar Ministerie), instead of acting on behalf of the best interest of Jasmijn.
- The fact that the deportation definitely did not proceed according to the Enforcement Protocol and the “Guide to Good Practice” of the Hague Convention as witnessed by multiple neighbors who submitted their statements to the Court about the fact that
- On our way to school Jasmijn and I were jumped by a large SWAT team in black fighting gear
- Jasmijn was dragged in to a car with tinted windows while kicking, hitting and screaming (please note that in most countries deportation proceedings are permanently aborted when children resist to this extent)
- Jasmijn did not get a chance to say goodbye to me
- Jasmijn did not get a chance to say goodbye to her grandmother, uncles, aunts, cousins and friends
- Jasmijn did not get a chance to take personal belongings
- Jasmijn vomited in the car to the airport (please note that in most countries deportation proceedings are permanently aborted when children become physically ill to this extent)
- Jasmijn was handed over to her father at the airport, while she had not seen him and strongly resisted seeing him for a period of 20 months
- The fact that the Dutch District Attorney (Openbaar Ministerie) violated my Constitutional Rights when detaining me without grounds in order to prevent me from stopping the deportation process through Summary Proceedings.
- The fact that the Dutch CPS (RvdK) did not collaborate with CFS in Marin County, CA before the deportation in order to immediately remove Jasmijn from the custody of Dave H upon arrival in The United States until a thorough 3118 sexual abuse and drug abuse investigation had been completed. Such collaboration is deemed mandatory by the Enforcement Protocol of The Hague Convention Treaty.
The following are several solutions my attorney Ariane Hendriks and I have proposed to prevent similar Human Rights violations from ever occurring to Protective Parents and their child(ren) in the future:
- When a parent files a child abuse and/or molestation report with the police and the agency handling and referring child abuse claims (Algemeen Meldpunt Kindermishandeling) the Dutch CPS (RvdK) should be alerted and continuously informed about the investigation, treatment and development of the child. If expert evidence of child abuse and/or molestation by experts such as employed by GGNet Jeugd is confirmed, the Dutch CPS (RvdK) should protect the child and the reporting protective parent. In case the abusive parent files a Hague Convention case against the protective parent the Dutch CPS (RvdK) should advice the Court in The Hague against deportation of the child by triggering implementation of Article 13 of the Hague Convention Treaty.
- The Enforcement Protocol and the “Guide to Good Practice” of the Hague Convention should be converted in to a legislative act that the Central Authority in all participating countries is bound to adhere to when deportation is deemed legitimate, before, during and after proceedings until the child reaches the age of 16 and the Hague Convention Treaty is no longer applicable.
- In case grounds for deportation are deemed legitimate no child should be deported without first being placed in a neutral temporary custody setting during which time the child should get the opportunity to properly and gradually transition between parents under guidance of a team of expert child psychologists in order to prevent Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other damaging psychological consequences for the child and the left-behind parent. In case the child continues to express resistance against deportation on grounds of domestic violence such as mother and/or child abuse and/or molestation, such evidence should be allowed to be presented to the Court and the deportation procedures should be cancelled.
- A United Nations cross-disciplinary Oversight Committee consisting of legal experts, mental health experts, forensic experts and mediation experts should be established in order to guarantee correct implementation of the Hague Convention Treaty by Hague Convention judges and Central Authority personnel worldwide. In case of gross violations of The Hague Convention Treaty such as Jasmijn’s case this Oversight Committee should have the judiciary power to reverse Appellate Court orders worldwide. This same UN Oversight Committee should monitor correct functioning of Central Authority personnel worldwide to ensure proper after-care and continuous monitoring of the deported child as well as continued contact between the child and the left-behind parent.
- Immediate solutions for Jasmijn have been suggested and received by the Ombudsman with positive response. These solutions will not be made public at this time.
On behalf of Jasmijn and the 185 children who get deported from The Netherlands every year as well as their primary caregiving parents (mostly Protective Mothers), I would like to thank Kinderombudsman Marc Dullaert for his willingness to listen and seek solutions. The severe Human Rights violations that were inflicted upon Jasmijn, her maternal family and myself will not have been in vain if other children in Jasmijn’s situation are saved from such horrendous fate. May the proposed solutions be implemented in an expedited manner so that The Netherlands can lead the way for other nations in the fight against global court-ordered child trafficking.
May Jasmijn be returned home soon, safe and sound!
