A British college instructor (Father) hasn’t seen his Daughter in fourteen years.
Her Mother allegedly abducted her from the UK to Brazil at that time.
Brazil is a party to the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.
But Brazil sometimes seems to follow the Convention only at its pleasure.
Brazilian authorities have reportedly told Father he is not welcome in Brazil.
Father is now appealing to the UK government to intervene with Brazil, but probably too late to do any good even under the Hague Convention. Daughter is now 17 years old.
Mother reportedly changed Daughter’s name as part of an improper adoption.
