February 11, Another Positive Step Forward

BREAKING NEWS: A huge Win, today a panel of nine judges ruled unanimously that the case will be heard in the Federal court in Brazil, NOT in the Rio state court. We hope to have more details soon on the pending court proceedings which will follow this decision.

And let’s continue to make phone calls to our Congressmen asking for their support and co-sponsorship of House Resolution 125 (you can find more info on H.RES.125 at http://bringseanhome.org/hr125.html). THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PROJECT WE SHOULD ALL BE WORKING ON CURRENTLY. There is some urgency to this project as President Lula of Brazil is coming to the US in mid-March and we need to exert maximum pressure on the Brazilian government ahead of this trip. The sooner we build the list of co-sponsors for this Resolution the sooner it will be signed by Congress.

Here is what we’ve been telling/writing House members, regarding: House Resolution 125:

Please co-sponsor House Resolution 125 (H.RES.125) introduced by Congressman Chris Smith of New Jersey. It calls on the Central Authority of Brazil to immediately discharge all its duties under the Hague Convention by facilitating and supporting Federal judicial proceedings as a matter of extreme urgency to obtain the immediate return of Sean Goldman to his father, David Goldman.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has publicly endorsed this resolution.
