WND: Son taken from parents to be shipped overseas?

Dad reports social workers’ talk has referenced Thailand

Christer and Domenic Johansson

Social workers who had police troopers storm a jetliner on which a family was attempting to emigrate to India, to take custody of a young boy over his homeschooling, now have discussed sending him to a family in Thailand, the boy’s father has told WND.

WND reported only weeks ago that the social workers responsible for removing Domenic Johannson from his parents had called for a court hearing to consider moving custody permanently away from the family and to the government.

That word had come from officials with the Home School Legal Defense Association, which along with the Alliance Defense Fund already has elevated the dispute involving Christer and Annie Johannson and their son, Domenic, of Sweden to the European Court of Human Rights.

Domenic, now 9, has been in the custody of social services and in foster homes in Sweden since 2009, when as a 7-year-old he was snatched from a jetliner he and his parents had boarded to move to India, his mother’s home country.

Michael Donnelly, director of international relations for HSLDA, told WND when the social services workers sought the court hearing, “The only way I can think of describing the way the Swedish social and judicial systems have treated the Johansson family is barbaric – the harm done to them is beyond comprehension.
