News Update December 9th

David traveled to Washington D.C. on December 5th for meetings with representatives from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), The Office of Children’s Issues at the U.S. State Department, and a senior official in the Consulate General Office of the Brazilian government. The meetings went well and David was encouraged that more help is on the way. We’re hopeful that the people who can make a difference in this case will take the necessary actions which will lead to Sean coming home soon.

We encourage you to try to make it to one of the rallies being organized this Friday, December 12, in front of any of the Brazilian Consulate General offices around the country, especially New York where we expect a good crowd and will be giving out 200 “Bring Sean Home” t-shirts to supporters.

Update on Legal Case in Brazil: A Terrible Decision

Late last week Judge Luis Felipe Salomão, from the Superior Court of Justice (STJ) issued a stay to the Hague case pending at the 1st level federal court in Rio de Janeiro while he decides who has jurisdiction in the case, the State Court or the Federal Court.  David needs the case to remain at the federal level to have any chance of a proper decision. It has been established precedent that Hague cases are handled at the federal level in Brazil, but Lins e Silva is trying to move the case to the Rio State court, to waste more time and exert his influence.

The filing in front of Judge Salomão was only to determine if the State or Federal court will decide this case. Instead of making a determination on the issue in front of him, Judge Salomão decided to weigh in on the merits of the case and stated that Sean would be exposed to “irreperable damage” if he had contact with David just before the holidays. Based on this, the Judge established that the case should be stayed until he makes his determination on which court should decide the case. Judge Salamão appointed the Federal Judge responsible for urgent matters, but forbid the Federal Court from proceeding with the psychological evaluations, and forbid the Federal Court from allowing visitation now, on the grounds that “such matters are not urgent.” He made this decision 12 hours before Sean was to be evaluated.

Judge Salomão, until last June, 2008, was a Judge from the 2nd Level State Court of Rio de Janeiro. What is most important for David now is having the conflict of jurisdiction issue decided by Judge Salomão before December 19th, the last day of work in STJ before their summer recess. The court will be closed for the holidays and will open again on February 1st. As of now, the records of the conflict of jurisdiction are with the Public Prosecution Service. If the Public Prosecutor sends the records back to Court this week, Judge Salomão needs to decide the conflict of jurisdiction issue immediately. We are not optimistic, however, given the absurdity of this most recent decision.

    How can he say there would be “unrecoverable damage” if there hasn’t been a psychological evaluation? And why would there be ANY damage unless the Lins e Silvas have been lying to Sean?

    There’s only one way this makes sense.

  2. LukieD says:

    Note: We will be adding Judge Salomão’s contact info to the “How to Help” page later this week.

    This is absolutely absurd! I am from Brazil and I am ashamed of my government! Brailians are good people over all, but these few in power will ruin our country’s chances from ever advancing in the world community as a first world nation. I have been following this tragic case for a long while. Please, Brazilian Government step in and do the right thing and reunite Sean and David.

    President Lula your friendship was with Evandros Lins e Silva not these awful scums living off his legacy of honor. Have no allegence to Paulo or his son J P. Evandros would never allow his offspring to behave in such a despicable manner. It’s past time to stop this wrong!

  4. Liesl78 says:

    I echo Sara’s feelings. I’m Brazilian and ashamed. I also tried to take Friday off to attend the rally but my manager won’t let us take any because it’s year-end.

    Oh, I remembered something. the Brazilian Consulate is on Whitehave St; just up the same street is the Clinton residence. Not sure if Sen Clinton will be in DC on that day.

    What? a 6-week recess????

  5. swash1 says:

    A petition has been created on Care2. It’s a quick, easy way for friends and family who are not sending emails, calling, or otherwise willing/able to get involved to show support.

    http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/return-abducted-minor-sean-goldman-to-his-father

    Hopefully, we will be adding a link to this on the How to Help page very soon.

    As for a 6 week reces, remember these are judges (aka politicians w/ robes). You sound like an American. Only in America is 2 weeks a year considered a reasonable vacation.

  6. Irish17 says:

    I can not believe what I just read about this case. I am in shock and in tears. While the news about David’s meetings on December 5th sounded positive the news from the judges in Brazil is not and is very upsetting and quite troubling. Doesn’t any one in the justice department, the judicial arenas or the government have any clue of right vs. wrong? Don’t they have any children and know the pain and suffering from being kept away from them for so long? Lets just hope & pray that something positive comes out of Brazil between now & December 19th. I will refrain from saying anything about the 6 weeks off

    With this type of news today… time to get BUSY! Time to tell the US media to start extensively covering David Goldman’s story. Found some key e-mail addresses of top US media networks and publications. Write these reporters today, and ask them to cover David’s story– AND attend the rally on Friday to interview David and learn about his case.

    With enough pressure from THOUSANDS of readers and viewers in the US (and worldwide), Brazilian courts will start feeling the heat from angry citizens worldwide!

    Here are 2 websites that list major US media contact info, including e-mails. If you put together an e-mail list of a particular media company, please list on this blog, so we can all e-mail these reporters and journalists. Thanks!

    We ask why??? David – please hang in there… let’s all email (and call) any/all media sources in USA and abroad. The constant reminder of this is necessary now more than ever. One cannot imagine the crude sense of “justice” that seems rampant in Brazil. And for all of you from Brazil – thank you for your support in this and helping to spread the news. It is the legal system in Brazil and not the people. More work to be done – let’s GO FOR IT… the job is NOT done until Sean and David are finally together.

    Paternidade em questão
    Disputa de guarda vai para conciliação, decide STJ

    O Superior Tribunal de Justiça decidiu fazer uma audiência de conciliação entre um pai norte-americano e um padrasto brasileiro que disputam a guarda de um menino de oito anos. O caso ocupa os tribunais do país desde 2004, quando a mãe, brasileira, saiu dos Estados Unidos com a criança, sem a autorização do pai biológico. A audiência deverá ocorrer em fevereiro de 2009.

    Na Justiça brasileira, ela conseguiu a guarda definitiva, mas morreu em agosto desse ano. O episódio inaugurou uma nova disputa. Desta vez, entre o pai biológico e o padrasto, que pede o reconhecimento da paternidade sócio-afetiva.

    A 2ª Seção do STJ referendou a liminar do relator, ministro Luís Felipe Salomão, para que sejam suspensas, por 60 dias, as ações que tramitam na Justiça estadual e na Justiça Federal sobre a guarda do menino. Com isso, as medidas urgentes sobre o caso deverão ser tomadas pela Vara de Família em que o padrasto pede a guarda do enteado. Esse juízo já negou um pedido do norte-americano para visitar a criança.

    Na Justiça Federal, tramita uma ação de busca e apreensão em favor do norte-americano, movida pela União, com base na Convenção de Haia sobre os Aspectos Civis de Seqüestro Internacional de Crianças. Esse juízo havia concedido ao norte-americano o direito de visitação ao filho, mas o encontro não ocorreu.

    Por causa do conflito entre as decisões, o norte-americano entrou com conflito de competência no STJ, para que seja decidido qual o juízo responsável pelo exame da questão. A análise definitiva ainda não foi feita pela 2ª Seção, mas os ministros autorizaram o relator a promover uma audiência de conciliação entre os pais — o biológico e o sócio-afetivo. O Código Civil (artigo 125) estabelece que o juiz tente conciliar os litigantes a qualquer tempo.
