More Guardians take Action Over Parental Abduction, ERR News, Estonia Public Broadcasting (April 13, 2011). Estonian Justice Ministry official, Astrid Laurendt-Hanioja, demonstrates a firm grasp of the 1980 Hague Abduction Convention that continues to elude many states parties’ judges: “Recovery does not mean that a kid is taken away from the parent who took the child to another country. The parent returns with the child to the country of permanent residence [of the child] and then the local court will make its ruling on legal guardianship.”
