Family of Sevenoaks schoolgirls missing in Thailand make plea for information

Recommended Posts

If you abscond with children who are not in your parental custody surely that is abduction.

Of course it's abduction...anything said otherwise....is wrong.

I live in Thailand and have full custody of my first born. Because my ex and I were not married she automatically gained full custody of her and I am not even recognized as the father until we marry or go to court. We broke up and I went to court with a 2 tiered request. To be recognized as the father and to gain full custody which was granted.

If I hand my child to her mother and she is not returned then it is kidnapping. Obviously the police here think that to due to the arrests warrant out on her. I commend him for the dedication and commitment he has made in trying to get his kids back. I empathize with him as it would rip my heart out if I was in the same predicament.

I hope they are returned as soon as possible and the woman held to account. For a father to be granted full custody is apparently rare in Thailand so one can be assured there is a combination of her being an unfit mother and him being an exemplary father.

Good luck.

Thailand is not that big Chooka,, there would be clues and information Thai's don't miss anything, the police need to be more pro active, some one knows something, just who remains to be seen.

The police will do nothing unless they are specifically paid to perform any duty that requires extra footwork, plus a promise of further payment when successful !

It seems that this is just a matter of time before the authorities one way or the other find them.

I feel sorry for everyone here since emotions are running high

Good luck Hope you get the girls real soon

He shall have been awarded 'custody' for sure, but in Thailand parental responsibility is 50/50 and never intended to be devisive. If the children are in Thailand, then legally (and unfortunately, in this case), and in law, she has as much right to that parental responsibility. Thus, it is not abduction. As soon as he handed them into the 'parental care of mother', on a formal, even if ad hoc, basis, he handed parental responsibility for the time they are with her. If that time was not agreed on paper, in a contractual form, then the mother has done nothing wrong. (again, I re-iterate, unfortunately). Such issues are delicate matters where children are involved, and anybody should read this forum with severity at mind. Sort out the law, before you assume it works the way it does in your home country.

Please don't comment about a sensitive matter such as this when you have clearly no idea what you are talking about. Moderators would do well to remove your bs post along with my reply.

You have no idea what you are talking about. A father is able to get full custody in Thailand. In this case that is what has happened and her not returning the children makes this kidnapping.

Poor sod must be pulling his hair out . When i first got custody of my kids 8 years ago they were 3 an4 and I lived in fear of this happening

I hope they throw the book at the mother and the bloke , Thais don't do guilt but he should know better.

If it is believed that the new husband has anything to do with this he could find himself barred from Thailand.

Being barred from Thailand could be the least of his worries. If they prove he has helped he can do serious jail time courtesy of the thai government

Yep.. and as he should....

if the boyfriend is reading this, I would suggest making contact with the father or the police for the safe return of the kids to their rightful place. Might keep you out of jail, and a Thai jail to boot, for a LONG time.

This case is 72 days old, and in fact anyone who has been following the story, would know that actually there is an arrest warrant out for the mother, for kidnapping, which carries a sentence of up to 15 years imprisonment. She has no legal right to the children which has already been recognised by Thai law. Approximately 3 weeks ago she had been in touch with the police , and said she was willing to give the children up on the basis of " no arrest". Obviously didn't happen. I just hope this story has a happy ending.
