Ruby Harrold-Claesson says:
A little correction:
The 3 day court hearing was to decide on the legal guardianship of Domenic, i e a kind of forced adoption, and the hearing took place in the Svea Court of Appeal, i e the civil court system.
The administrative courts in Stockholm removed me from the public care case because neither the social workers nor Domenic’s public counsel (see http://sverigesradio.se/sida/artikel.aspx?programid=94&artikel=3910860), wanted to see me on the case.
Sweden’s two court systems operate from different values: Annie & Christer are deemed as unfit parents in the administrative courts, but they were found to be very good parents in Gotland District Court.
Thanks Barbara – and friends – for your continued support
Thanks Ruby for this up date and this correction.
I have just been rung by Ruby Harrold-Claesson (yes it is after midnight for her) – the 3 day court hearing finished today: http://hef.org.nz/2012/johansson-family-back-in-court-22-26-november/
They were overjoyed with the number of people who came to support the Johansson family. The Court room filled. They had to stop proceedings to get more chairs. During the lunch time break they had to change rooms to make it more comfortable for everyone. It was wonderful to see everyone stay until the end of the court proceedings although the Social worker and another person with the Social Worker had to leave part way through Ruby’s last presentation to the Court. There were two representatives of the Indian embassy there as well today, which was very encouraging.
The Judges were very warm and understanding.
We have to wait for 2 weeks for the verdict.
So where to from here: This is what Ruby told me back in Septemberhttp://hef.org.nz/2012/what-is-happening-for-domenic-johansson-and-his-parents/
We have to wait to see if the Administrative Courts will re-appoint Ruby to this case. Please be praying for this as well.
So current prayer requests:
1. For the 5 Judges over the next 2 weeks, as they make a decision on the last 3 days in the Civil and Criminal Court over the custody/guardianship of Domenic.
2. For the decisions in the Administrative Court of Appeal over re-appointing Ruby to be the Johansson’s public counsel.
