Viewing of Jerzy Donus' film: For My Children.
The film has won Awards at three consecutive international film festivals. Members of the NCHR, LL.M, former medical practitioner, Siv Westerberg, lawyer who has won many cases against Sweden in the European Court, our v. president LL.M Jenny Beltrán, our president, LL.M Ruby Harrold-Claesson and PhD, Dipl. psychologist, Lena Hellblom Sjögren, who has lectured at several of the NCHR's Symposiums, are interviewed in the film.
The film is about something that has been very topical since 1988 when LL.M Siv Westerberg won the case 'Olsson v. Sweden' in the European Court of Human Rights. But despite multiple convictions in the European Court, the legal atrocity or legal child abduction, i. e. the law with special provisions for the care of the young still exists.
