BABY CASPIAN KIDNAPPED IN NORWAY…UPDATE #7

Caspian and Nadia June 2016

Caspian and Nadia
June 2016


It is almost a week since an update appeared here. There are a few events worth noting that have happened since then.

Nadia was allowed to see Caspian last Thursday and Friday.

According to an accurate source, Nadia thought that the visitations went very well. Caspian remembered Nadia on the first visit. Nadia was concerned before the visit that Caspian might not remember her very well.

Nadia has also been given visitations for every Thursday and Friday until her next court hearing.

A new date has been added to Nadia’s court schedule.

Nadia’s lawyer has sent her a text message. Apparently, a court hearing at an undisclosed location will be held on the 8th of August. This hearing will determine whether or not Caspian will be allowed to go home with Nadia until the permanent care order case is heard on August 25th.

The August 25th hearing will be heard in Bergen.

—————————

My thoughts:

Tomorrow, it will be a month since Caspian was kidnapped from his mother by the organization that is responsible for the proper care of abused children in Norway.

There has been no abuse of this child in this case. This is why the term “kidnapping” fits the situation in its current condition.

I have looked up the word “kidnap” in the dictionary. Here is a general definition that seems to summarize definitions of the word that I have read from dictionaries, Federal law, and International law.

“In criminal law, kidnapping is the unlawful taking away or transportation of a person against that person’s will, usually to hold the person unlawfully. This may be done for ransom or in furtherance of another crime, or in connection with a child custody dispute.”

In this case, Caspian’s legal guardian, Nadia, did not wish for her child to be taken. As there is no valid reason yet given for Caspian to be taken away from his mother, Caspian has been kidnapped.

Caspian has not yet been “stolen” from his mother as this would have to be the new term used if Nadia’s child is taken away permanently.
If Nadia has done anything wrong, maybe a reprimand of some type or counseling sessions might be necessary. However,

ACCORDING TO THE DEFINITION OF “KIDNAP” ABOVE, IT IS A CRIMINAL ACT TO “TAKE AWAY” CASPIAN FROM NADIA FOR THE REASONS GIVEN IN THIS CASE.

Also, note that this publication is not aware of any public statement made on this case by the Barnevernet, the organization responsible for this kidnapping which happened almost a month ago.

In a democracy, one is innocent until proven guilty. If this case had any merit, the penalty would be far less in any civilized society.

So…Nadia waits until Thursday to see Caspian. She will then have to wait until August 8th to find out if Caspian can stay with her until the important court hearing on August 25th. It seems that the August 25th hearing will determine Caspian’s future.

Please pray for Nadia and Caspian.

BABY CASPIAN KIDNAPPED IN NORWAY…UPDATE #6

July 6, 2016
Caspian and Nadia June 2016

Caspian and Nadia
June 2016

JUST A FEW MINUTES AGO (at approximately 10:30 am Norway time, July 6th), NADIA INFORMED ME THAT: “They called me from Barnevernet, and I can see him next week. They also want a meeting..”

The following update was almost complete when the news came in! This experience becomes more like a serious roller-coaster ride as time passes. Is this the way all Barnevernet “clients” are treated??? Most of the cases that I’m aware of have had similarities to this case, particularly in an apparent lack of communication by the Barnevernet. Each case is unique and should be treated as such.

Just a few minutes ago, Nadia had no idea when she would next see Caspian.

*******Update*******

Caspian is no longer with those who love him the most. Nadia, his mother, continues to be devastated.

The picture above is one of the last taken of mother and child together before Monday, June 13th, 24 days ago. Nadia describes in her own words what happened on that day:

“Suddenly came the day I had feared. Police and child welfare stood at the door and forced their way in to get my little prince lying in his bed.” (These words can be seen in the video below)

Nadia also wrote this recently:

“I carried him for 9 months in my stomach,
I loved him from the first moment I heard his heart”

Although the Wings of the Wind is still not aware of any public statement made by any source responsible for the separation of this child from this mother, statements of the defense lawyer have been made public.

Nadia’s lawyer, Harald Grape, writes about the hearing:

“It is recalled that child welfare leader, who met in committee, substantiated his opinion of the Caspian, he will dwell with mother at Hennum would not suffer as required by law. It was pointed journal dated 14th June where it appears that “Whether she should get the child back there is no reason to believe that the baby will suffer any direct overload…”

“How Tribunal has reached this is quite incomprehensible although one assumes reports to Vilde. Vilde was worried about Caspian had a “nascent lopsided development” based on reports that the tribunal had not will be accessible under the committee meeting.” (Google Translate)

“After our stay at Hennum it is quite obvious that Caspian has not got lopsided development. Firstly refer to a medical certificate dated 14 June 2016 from the doctor Ingvild Setså. It appears here that the Caspian provide very good contact, smiles and is very active, good general condition. He was a healthy and active boy who provide very good contact. This is a clear indicator that the Caspian in the five weeks he was with his mother after staying at Vilde developed well.” (Google Translate)

As noted in the last update the doctor, Ingvild Setså, was approved by the Barnevernet.

Mr. Grape continues:

“The Tribunal writes: ‘if the child is going back to his mother, he will again experience instability and fracture, which will be an additional burden for him'” (Google Translate)

“..it is quite obvious that the biological principle (is) no longer employed by the county boards in Norway. This violates the ECHR.” (The European Convention on Human Rights). (Google Translate)

This hearing took place on at The County Council for Child Welfare and Social Affairs (Fylkesnemnda) in Molde, Norway on Thursday, June 23rd.

Nadia was informed on Monday, June 27th that Caspian was to be kept by Norway’s Barnevernet (Child Protection Services).

Apparently, an appeal by Mr. Grape will not be heard.

Nadia will have to wait until August 25th for the next hearing in the case.

A protest will be held this Friday, July 8th, in Warsaw, Poland, for parents like Nadia. The protest is being held in conjunction with the NATO Summit Warsaw 2016 which will be attended by leaders from all over the world.
_________________________________

My thoughts:

As this account continues to unfold, I am continually amazed at the circumstances under which this has happened.

If the translation is correct, Mr. Grape (Nadia’s lawyer) has made several important points:

First, he notes that a “child welfare leader, who met in committee, substantiated his opinion of …Caspian…It was pointed journal dated 14th June (the day after Caspian was taken from his crib) where it appears that ‘Whether she should get the child back there is no reason to believe that the baby will suffer any direct overload…'”

So, it seems that in the hearing on the 14th a “child welfare leader” thought there was “no reason to believe that the baby will suffer any direct overload” if “she (Nadia) should get the child back.”

Second, Mr. Grape noted “How Tribunal has reached this is quite incomprehensible.”

Mr. Grape didn’t understand why the judge made such a decision and the only thing that was evident as the cause was the decision made at Vilde, the day after Nadia and Caspian left.

It is important to remember that the “Tribunal” consisted of one man.

Third, the term “nascent lopsided development” seems to be the term that The Vilde Mothers’ Home (Parent and Childcare center) used in the police report when Nadia was found missing. It appears that the judge in Molde made his decision on this report alone.

I looked up the word “nascent” in a dictionary. It means “just coming into existence and beginning to display signs of future potential.”

So, if I’m reading this correctly, Caspian was taken from his mother because some “lopsided development” was just beginning to show.

Every baby has its own personality. To take a child from his biological mother for such a reason is inhumane.

Fourth, Ingvild Setså (A doctor approved by the Barnevernet) checked Caspian’s health the day after he was kidnapped (it is the only term that fits well) from the Hennum home and his mother, Nadia. The doctor found Caspian to be in good health after being away from Vilde, enough to write some type of “medical certificate.”

Fifth, Mr. Grape writes that: “The Tribunal writes: ‘if the child is going back to his mother, he will again experience instability and fracture, which will be an additional burden for him…'”

So, one man called “The Tribunal” found a statement by a “Child Welfare leader;” the report of a doctor; and the eyewitness account (that is normally not taken) of the professional nurse, Margaret Hennum (it is also mentioned by Mr. Grape) to be inadmissible evidence in this case.

Also, as has already been noted, Caspian received a good health report on the day after he was taken. It appears obvious that the baby Caspian must have been getting very good care as noted by the doctor. How does this explain, “he will again experience instability?” This statement is made by the judge in spite of the fact that Caspian was receiving the best care of his young life at the home of Maraget Hennum.

Instead, “The Tribunal” used a report from the Vilde Center about some type of “”nascent lopsided development” to make his decision.

Also note that the phrase “he will AGAIN experience instability and fracture” is used.

After multiple reports that I’ve become aware of regarding the “Centers” where parents are observed (Nadia mentions cameras in the video below), if anything caused instability it was the environment that Nadia and Caspian were in for the first important months of Caspian’s life.

Sixth, these “Centers” are supposed to be voluntary. This is stated on the Barnevernet’s own website.

It doesn’t sound like Nadia wanted to be there.

Seventh, Mr. Grape writes his opinion: “This violates the ECHR,” The European Convention on Human Rights.

Norway has been admonished more than one time about human rights abuses similar to the ones in Nadiah’s and Caspian’s case. The words of the ECHR have fallen on deaf ears.

And last, Nadia has to wait until August 25th, as far as we know, to get another “hearing” in some type of court.

Where is Caspian? His own mother doesn’t know because the Barnevernet seems to think she is going to attempt to “kidnap” him. I have already used the term “kidnapped” here and it wasn’t in reference to Nadia.

Has Caspian been placed with potential foster care workers and is he now forming some kind of bond with them?

How do we know Caspian is receiving good care. Has there been another doctor’s report?

Is the Barnevernet watching Caspian as intently as it did at Vilde? It they are, it is unhealthy. Constant surveillance for the purpose of observation is intrusive at best. A loving parent is best suited to watching the child to insure its safety and welfare.

Will the Barnevernet ever take the The European Convention on Human Rights violation reports regarding Norway seriously?

There are other questions, but enough have been asked for now.
————————–

I JUST HEARD FROM NADIA AGAIN. (It is now almost 8 pm in Norway.) THERE WAS SOME SORT OF MISUNDERSTANDING AND NADIA’S MEETING WITH CASPIAN IS TOMORROW, THURSDAY, JULY 7.

I asked Nadia where the meeting was and how far she had to travel. Here was her reply:

“I will have to travel to Bergen. It’s far away.. I have to drive 40 minutes, then take a airplane, then a bus for maybe 1 hour. They say they want a meeting on Friday.”

Nadia was in a hurry as she needed to prepare for the trip and said good-bye with a smiley face. She has had such a good attitude, as far as I can tell, after all she has been through.

So, she has to hurry to make a long trip so that she can see Caspian tomorrow in Bergen and then she will go to some kind of meeting with Barnevernet officials on Friday.

What if Nadia couldn’t make the meeting for one reason or another, maybe because of time or financial constraints? Would this be held against her to add to the non-existent evidence for taking Caspian in the first place. One can only wonder…and pray.
————————————–

Nadia and another victim of Norway’s CPS recently made and published the following video. If you haven’t seen it, I would recommend it. If you have seen it, you may want to watch it a second time. I have. It is a “picture with words” that tells the story of a mother who is very concerned for the well-being of her child.

BABY CASPIAN KIDNAPPED IN NORWAY…UPDATE #5

June 27, 2016
Caspian

Caspian

The judge has decided: Caspian is NOT coming home to Nadia!

Within the past few hours, Nadia has received a verdict by e-mail and Margaret Hennum has talked to Nadia’s lawyer by phone.

The judge has ruled against Nadia and Caspian.

The Wings of the Wind has been told by a good source that there was only one thing the judge considered in this hearing.

A police report was filed by someone at the Vilde Mothers’ Home on the 6th of May. Nadia had left The Vilde Mothers’ Home with Caspian the day before, on May 5th, less than two months ago.

The judge’s ruling was based solely on this report.

Nadia’s lawyer Harald Grape was very surprised by the decision and appealed the verdict today.

The report of a doctor was not considered in the decision.

A doctor approved by the Barnevernet had a checked Caspian’s health and found no signs of neglect. This check up took place the day after Caspian was taken from his crib on Monday, June 13th.

Caspian was doing well with his mother.

The judge did not consider Nadia’s treatment in the Vilde Mother’s Home.

The Judge did not consider the report of the doctor or any of the reports or testimony made by Margaret Hennum, the pediatric nurse who had welcomed Nadia and Caspian into her own home to try and help them.

The judge did not consider the good environment that Caspian was exposed to at Ms Hennum’s home.

A good source states that: “None of this valuable evidence was even mentioned by the judge in his decision.”

The appeal by Nadia’s lawyer, Harald Grape, was made to Tingretten, which is some type of lower court or Council Court in Norway.

The Wings of the Wind will give more information about Tingretten in a future update as this information was only learned from a good source moments ago.

It is not known at this time when this case will be heard. Harold Grape is hoping that it will be before the previously proposed date that had been set if Nadia had been entrusted with her son.

The date for that court hearing had been set for August 25th. Mr. Grape is hoping that this case will be heard before that date.

————————

Editor’s note:

This publication is tracking the events as they occur in Norway in modern times.

It is my understanding that this account is not unusual in Norway.

The majority of evidence can be in the mother’s favor and still not be even considered.

This is not democracy. Where is the due process afforded to any citizen of a democratic society?

Damage has been done today. How much damage has been done we may never know.

A child has been deprived of his loving Mother once again. How many times will they do this in Norway? Sadly, it is just another day there. This is not that unusual. In fact, it is common.

A parent can do nothing right in the eyes of the Barnevernet when it chooses to look at a mother as a bad parent. Good things that the parent tries are seen as bad. All one has to do is read the account first reported in THE RISE AND FALL (?) OF THE NORWEGIAN CPS to understand what many young mothers in Norway are going through.

It is a very sad day in Norway.

BABY CASPIAN KIDNAPPED IN NORWAY…UPDATE #4

Caspian

Nadia’s lawyer thought that a decision would be made in his client’s case today. He and Nadia waited for a phone call or a text message.

None came.

Nadia received a text message from her lawyer at approximately 4:50 pm this afternoon. It read:

“I have not heard anything and they are closed. This means that they will not decide until Monday.”

Nadia, Caspian’s mother, has been told that her son is in Bergen, a 7-8 hour trip away by car. Nadia has been informed that Caspian is at an undisclosed address because the Barnevernet doesn’t want her to know of his location. This is because they think that Nadia might try to kidnap Caspian. It is the reason they will not let Nadia know where Caspian is.

The Wings of the Wind has been told by a good source that yesterday’s hearing was held in Molde, about a 1 and 1/2 hour drive from where Nadia now lives. Nadia and Caspian’s new temporary residence is in Brandal, Norway at the residence of Margaret Hennum.

This publication has also learned more about the hearing in Molde, yesterday.

First, only one person presided over the hearing.

Second, Brynhild Solvang, the head of the CPS office in Volda, the office where the decision to take Caspian from his mother was made, was present with a Barnevernet lawyer.

Third, Nadia and her Lawyer were also present to answer questions and give testimony.

Fourth, Margaret Hennum was allowed to give witness testimony.

Fifth, Nadia’s lawyer expected a decision today.

Nadia’s lawyer waited today for an answer and was not contacted by the Molde office.

Nadia received the text message from her lawyer noted above.

—————
Editor’s notes: The events of this case in the past two days bring up many more questions than they answer.

Why was Nadia’s lawyer not notified that there would be no ruling until next week?

Why is Caspian so far away from his mother in Bergen?

Why would the Barnevernet think that Nadia would kidnap her child? She has never attempted anything like it in the past that has been noted.

Why was only one person presiding over the hearing at The County Council for Child Welfare and Social Affairs (Fylkesnemnda)? As noted in yesterday’s update: “The Tribunal consists of the case of a manager who is a lawyer, two experts members and two members of a normal range.” this information was mentioned in the link from the Fylkesnemnda, posted here yesterday in Update #3.

Why was Margaret Hennum allowed to give witness testimony? The Wings of the Wind has been informed that this is very unusual in a case like this.

I also have a new question based on new information which I have been given from a reliable source.

I have been told that the decision of this County Council for Child Welfare and Social Affairs is only a temporary decision.

Nadia has been informed that there will be another hearing in late August to further determine the welfare of Caspian.

My question: Even if Nadia is given custody of Caspian on Monday, why does she have to go to another hearing to determine Caspian’s future?

All of these question come to one big one: Is this how all child welfare cases are handled in Norway? If so, I can’t imagine a loving parent having to go through this experience.

On top of all of this there is Nadia’s background. She was taken from a mother whom she considered “loving” when she was only 13. Her, four siblings, including twins, were split up into five different places and raised in five different environments. Thus, she has experienced something similar to this once in her life already and now it is happening again with her own child. If the CPS of Norway (Barnevernet) was very concerned for Caspian or his mother, the case wouldn’t be handled in such a cold and heartless manner.

The term “kidnap” usually means that someone is taken against his/her will. The kidnappers here work for Norway’s Barnevernet. The kidnapper is not Nadia, the loving mother of Caspian.

BABY CASPIAN KIDNAPPED IN NORWAY…UPDATE #2

June 20, 2016

Caspian

Caspian


The account of this little Norwegian boy continues to spread worldwide. Caspian’s mother Nadia is focused on the welfare of her son and is very concerned about several things. Nadia has had very little visitation with Caspian. She fears that her own son will not recognize her the next time he sees her. This happened the last time there was visitation, now days ago, before Caspian had been moved as far away as Bergen. The Wings of the Wind has not been able to verify this but it is thought that Norway’s CPS has moved the child there because Nadia has an address listed there.

The WOW has learned of two major legal events that will occur this week.

Today, Nadia and Caspian are scheduled to receive a change of address from a location that is seven hours away, to a closer address in Brandel. This new address is much closer to the CPS office where Caspian was first taken after his abduction on Monday, the 13th of June. This publication will be watching this development closely as the new residence is much closer than Bergen. Barnevernet’s stated intention is to help children. Will the CPS move Caspian back to Volda where he is much closer to his mother?

The Council Court is scheduled to be held in Fylkesnemnda this Thursday, the 23rd of June.

The Wings of the Wind has learned of another concern.

Nadia was planning to have Caspian baptized. Family and friends were to be invited, and after a ceremony in church, a celebration was to be held in the home of Margaret Hennum. Margaret is the nurse who has been helping Nadia adjust to normal living after spending five months in a Mothers’ Home. The incident that happened at the Hennum home last Monday changed those plans. The incident was reported in some detail in NORWAY’S CPS KIDNAPS CHILD…TODAY!!!!!

As infant baptism is important to many in Norway, a question has been asked by many inside and outside of the country, “Will the country bearing the Cross on its flag allow a mother to baptize her child?” The WOW finds this to be a very good question because of statements made in this case.

Ms. Hennum has made this statement:

“Why was Caspian kidnapped? Because he was living in the same house as me, a person criticizing the abuse done by Barnevernet! Their acute decision to kidnap him was terribly wrong. They admitted this the day after, saying that staying with us will not do him any harm!”

As this publication is not aware of any public comment made on this subject by Barnevernet officials; Ms. Solveig Horne, Norway’s Minister of Children and Equality; or Ms. Erna Solberg, Norway’s Prime Minister, another important question emerges.

Norway is considered a democracy. In a democracy people are allowed to voice disapproval with most things, including issues within a government. It appears that Ms. Erna Solberg reads her Facebook page in spite of the criticism that she sometimes receives. This is the way a democracy works. No one is above the law and citizens have a vote to help determine that law.

Why is Ms. Hennum not allowed to write a public opinion on any social media?

“In 1814, Norway was given a unique opportunity to write its own Constitution, and to take the first steps towards independence. The Norwegian Constitution is the oldest in Europe, and the second oldest in the world, that is still in use.

“Today, the Norwegian Constitution safeguards fundamental human rights – both political (freedom of expression, freedom of assembly, and freedom of association) and economic. This is the foundation of Norway’s democracy today.” (SOURCE)

Ms. Hennum stated: “Removal according to an emergency decision can be carried out only when a child is in acute danger, and only then. Even the police responsible for the removal, stated several times that we were good caregivers.”

Does a democracy treat its citizens in this manner?

Brynhild Solvang, is the head of the CPS office that was responsible for taking Caspian away from his biological mother. This publication is not aware of any statement made by the responsible CPS office regarding this incident.

As each day passes, possible damage is being done to Caspian.

That possible damage is documented here:

How does early-life trauma impact development?

This publication hopes that something can be done soon to correct the situation.
