What is happening for Domenic Johansson and His Parents!


I spoke to Ruby Harrold-Claesson a couple of  nights ago and asked her if she had been removed from the Johanssons’ case. She replied that she is still on the transfer of custody/guardianship case, which the Johanssons’ won in June, but the social council has appealed. (Ruby should be able to represent the Johansson’s in this appeal if it goes ahead.)
Ruby then went on to explain the situation that the Johanssons are caught up in two sets of cases in the two separate court systems in Sweden. There are the civil and criminal courts and the administrative courts. It was the administrative courts that removed Ruby from the Johanssons’ case in 2010, claiming that she was unsuitable, but the civil and criminal court (Gotland District court) appointed her as the Johanssons’ legal counsel in the guardianship case.
After winning the case in the District court in June, the Johanssons applied to the administrative court to have their son Domenic returned to them. The administrative court has refused to appoint Ruby as their public counsel for the case, so they have appealed and they are awaiting the decision from the administrative court of appeal.
By the way, Ruby won a case against Sweden in the European Court of Human Rights on April 5, 2012. Read about it here http://hudoc.echr.coe.int/sites/eng/pages/search.aspx#{%22dmdocnumber%22:[%22905687%22],%22itemid%22:[%22001-110246%22]}. Congratulations Ruby.

Please keep praying for this family and writing words of encouragement to them and on their behalf.
