The Stolen Families

John Waite investigates the growing number of international child abduction cases where a parent flees abroad with their children to keep custody and evade the law. So does the law need strengthening to protect the rights of the 'left-behind' parent? And how effective is the international convention which is designed to ensure children are returned home quickly?
