Alleged Child Abductors for President and Minister of Justice?

Back in May, I posted regarding a Pregnant Woman Jailed for Abducting Children Abroad.

The children have now been returned to their father in Canada, in accordance with the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.

The father has reportedly maintained all along that the mother has turned the case into a media circus, exploiting their children and religious bias to try their case in the court of public opinion.

The mother, who remains in prison in Canada, is allegedly running for the Presidency in France.

Her current, common law husband is reportedly running for the office of Minister of Justice there.

“Together, [they] are writing a book critical of Gettliffe’s treatment in Canada, which they have tentatively titled In The Hell of the Canadian Prisons.”

There is no indication whether the criminal charges pending against them may impede their chances of winning at the polls.

Certainly, this is not the typical child custody case. Not even the typical international child kidnapping case.
