S (A Child: Abduction) [2002] EWCA Civ 1941

Judgment, published: 31/12/2002

Items referring to this

  • M's appeal where the issue was whether the High Court of England and Wales had jurisdiction to order the 'return' to this country of a small child who had never been present here on the basis that he was habitually resident here or that he had British nationality. Appeal allowed, the SC holding that the court had inherent jurisdiction to make the orders in this case on the basis of the child's British nationality. The case was however remitted to the judge to consider as a matter of urgency whether it was appropriate to exercise this exceptional jurisdiction. Judgment, 10/09/2013, free
  • Appeal by father against decision that the court had no jurisdiction to hear an application for return of children from Bangladesh. Appeal dismissed. Judgment, 29/07/2014, free
