"I have been alienated from my children for years".

"My empty house in Tokyo ... one day my girls will run up and down those stairs again, and burst in and out those rooms and sit warmly in that bath again. They will chase away the ghosts of that haunted place".

"The (Japanese) courts will do nothing for you. Courts are there to apply laws. There are no laws against your wife taking your children".

"The (Japanese) court takes an action of dragging on cases forever while always hinting that they will be able to help you so as to prevent you from doing anything desperate, ... knowing that months and years of separation will wear you down until you realize your children have forgotten you". ...

"I returned home, my wife had took my children ... The nightmare had truly begun. I was about to discover that in Japan, a Japanese person can abduct anyone they like, with the help of the police, the kids' school, all the neighbors, everyone in cahoots".

"I went to the (Japanese) police and reported that my wife had abducted our children with no court order, no divorce, no permission, no agreement in place. The desk sergent, when I told him my wife had run away with the children, laughed to his associate".

"I next went to the British embassy, whose official informed me that they were unable to do anything to help get my children back".

"Child abduction in Japan is notorious". ...


"I had no idea that a terrible nightmare was just about to begin ... the memories of this very moment will be etched into my mind forever ... I opened the door to the hotel room, my wife and two year old son were suddently no longer present, had disappeared, vanished into thin air ... I was paralyzed in a state of overwhelming panic and shock ... my wife had abducted our son".

"I found out that instead of arresting (abducting) criminals, Japanese police arrested the victimised parents trying to revover or reconnect with their children ... the Japanese government is supportive of crime and human rights abuse against innocent children. Pretending to resolve cases without taking meaningful action. Japanese lawyers counsel potential child abductors on how to make kidnappings successful. Japanese courts assist in these crimes and child abuse, by furnishing rulings which assist kidnapping criminals and forever separate parents and children"

"To observers viewing the nicely polished surface, it would no doubt appear that Japan was Hague Abduction Convention compliant. In reality the convention made no difference ... It was easy to conclude that Japan was non-compliant with the Hague Abduction Convention". ...
