Update on this story.  For those that don't know the background well, a Russian mother abducted a child from Finland and a Finnish Consular Officer in Russia there helped locate the child and, alongside the father, personally drove the child back out of Russia and back home.

Can you imagine anyone in the US government doing that?  I can't.

This is what I see our government's Embassy's doing:

Refusing to help adult American women who were abducted as children leave Middle-Eastern countries where they are treated as chattel:

Using the US Marines to force mothers and children out into the streets:

Americans Trapped in Saudi Arabia 4 of 4: Who Will Move a Mountain?

When Chris Savoie called the US Embassy in Japan to tell them he was coming there with his abducted American kids they closed the gates and called the police.

While our State Dept talks about "alienating our allies" a Finnish diplomat helps a father get his son back out of Russia against Russian laws.

What was the result of this brave action by a diplomat with a heart and integrity?  Russia and Finland are on the verge of signing a bilateral treaty against child abduction and Russia has committed to signing the Hague Abduction Convention.

If only we had more Foreign Service Officers brave enough to actually do something for our children instead of a bunch of paper pushing bureaucrats and cowards more concerned with the possibility of "offending our allies" than helping our people.

Finnish court rejects Salonen’s plea for restoration of custody of her son

HELSINKI, April 11 (Itar-Tass) -- The court of the Finnish city of Pori on Monday, April 11, rejected Russian citizen Rimma Salonen’s request for re-giving her custody of her son Anton and ordered her to pay alimony of 150 euros monthly, Salonen’s public solicitor Johan Bekman told Itar-Tass.

Earlier this year, the court of Finland’s Satakunta province announced a new verdict in the case of Rimma Salonen who was given a suspended sentence in 2009 for abducting her own son and who is now seeking reunification with him.

The court re-examined the case upon Salonen’s complaint, in which she demanded that her seven-year-old son be returned to her and that her parental rights, which were taken away from her by a Finnish court in November 2008 on demand of the boy’s father, Paavo Salonen of Finland, be reinstated.

“The court fully supported the father’s position and refused to return the child to his mother,” Salonen’s public solicitor Johan Bekman told Itar-Tass.

He said that “this ruling is temporary and was made in connection with the urgent examination of the case. The complaint will be re-examined again on April 1, and the judge will hand down the final verdict two weeks after that.”

The Salonen case has been in court for several years. Paavo Salonen sued his former wife after she had left for Russia in March 2008, taking their son with her. A year later, she initial legal action in Russia and accused her ex-husband of abducting the boy.

In May 2009, his father secretly whisked his son out of Russia to Finland with the assistance of a Finnish diplomat. After that the Russian Foreign Ministry sent a note to the Finnish Foreign Ministry.

Criminal cases were opened against each of the spouses: against Rimma in Finland and against Paavo in Russia. Their son Anton is currently living with his father. His mother has been allowed to visit the boy twice a month at a children’s institution in the city of Pori in the presence of social workers but she cannot speak to him in Russian.

Rimma Salonen told Itar-Tass earlier that Anton was still living with his father, who was appointed by a Finnish court to be his guardian, the boy goes to the reception class at a Finnish school, and is allowed to see his mother twice a month.

“We meet in the city of Pori, in the presence of social workers and talk only Finnish,” she said.

Her former husband Paavo's intention to make peace has so far not gone further than words, but Rimma is determined to continue fighting for her son.

Rimma Salonen said Finnish authorities had withheld the fact that her son had Russian citizenship.

Meanwhile, Finnish police have completed the investigation into the Salonen family case.

“The police inquiry is over in respect of the state border trespassing and the abuse of office and prosecutors have taken up the case,” Finnish National Police Commissioner Mikko Paatero said earlier.

Rimma Salonen was detained by Estonian police at the request of the Finnish authorities in connection with the investigation conducted by them into her illegal taking of her 5-year-old son Anton from the Finnish city of Stormi in March 2008.

After divorce with Finnish citizen Paavo Salonen, Rimma Salonen, a citizen of Russia and Finland, and their son Anton lived together in the town of Balakhva in the Nizhny Novgorod region.

According to his mother's statement, her ex-husband was watching her and tried several times to get control of the son through court.

On April 12, 2009, the Finnish diplomat, acting by agreement and together with unidentified persons, attacked his ex-wife, Rimma, and abducted her son, Anton, outside 1, Ryazanov Str., at about 9 a.m. After that, the diplomat made the child get into the car against his will.

Salonen was charged with abduction of a knowingly minor person committed by a group of people by previous agreement.

A criminal case was opened in Russia against Paavo Salonen in connection with a crime punishable under Article 126 of the Russian Criminal Code (kidnapping of a minor by a group of persons by previous agreement).

Finnish Consul General in St. Petersburg Simo Pietilainen was subsequently declared persona non-grata for a gross violation of Russian laws and the Vienna conventions on diplomatic and consular relations.

The Finnish diplomat “illegally took Finnish citizen Paavo Salonen and his child Anton Salonen, who also has Russian citizenship, out of Russia to Finland,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

Russian competent authorities continue the investigation. Based on its results, a decision will be made on further actions, the ministry said.

The Finnish Foreign Ministry suggested concluding an agreement with Russia in order to avert child abductions in the future.

“Russia has not joined the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction and has not even concluded a bilateral agreement on this issue with Finland,” the statement said. “It is very difficult to settle such conflicts” for this reason, the document said.

Under Finnish laws, if a child has only one foster parent, the court settles personal problems of the child without the consent of the other parent. The second parent, who is not a foster parent, is not entitled to take any decisions, including those on the place of permanent residence of the child, without the consent of the foster parent.

I am new to the forum and not clear on how to begin my own thread. I am however not unfamiliar with the utterly disappointing treatment I get with the Department of State regarding the abduction of my 5 year old daughter to the UAE,over 13 months ago.

Although both her and her father are American of no Arab, nor any Middle Eastern ties (other than his work there) - he has been able to avoid FBI, Interpol etc, for 13 months now and the US Embassy is not going to use its considerable clout in that country to help me return my child home. I also have sole custody over her, which of course does not mean anything there. Ironically, I also won the custody over her in the Abu Dhabi court - as a mother of a girl - but that evidently does not stop the court there from  tolerating the legal custody rights of the dad after he kidnapped our daughter there. Additionally, I cannot return to the shariaa country because the father put up trumped up charges of 'infidelity' and such on my visa - which would have me arrested at any point of entry. So although I have custody in both countries I cannot be with my child - a paradox I  find hard to live in daily.
