6-year-old missing in Greece in Norway

The father’s lawyer says the 6-year-old kidnapped in the northern Athens suburb of Kifissia is in good condition and is looking forward to reuniting with his family and friends in Norway.

In a lengthy letter detailing the stages of the adventure, the “journey” of a 6-year-old boy who disappeared in Kifissia, his father’s lawyer states that the child returned safely to his father in Norway.

He also states that the boy should be examined by psychologists from the Norwegian Social Security Service, and that he will go to school in the fall. The document also mentions “an international warrant issued for the arrest of a mother for kidnapping a minor.”

Letter from the father’s lawyer to the representatives of the mother of the minor:

“In the afternoon, my client was informed that his child had safely returned to his country of residence, Norway. The boy reacted with joy to his impending reunion with his primary guardian yesterday after he was abducted in Greece by his mother, in July 2020. Returning home to his father was not a surprise for him.

The minor will be examined and, if necessary, offered support by the Norwegian Welfare Service if it is determined that the child has been traumatized as a result of the abduction. The child looks forward to meeting friends and family.

In the autumn he has to go to school. Based on this, there is no reason to worry about the well-being of the child. Appropriate security measures are being taken to prevent another illegal kidnapping of a child from Norway. Unfortunately, from my client’s point of view, it is clear that the Greek courts failed to take into account the circumstances, and also failed to comply with the requirements of the 1980 Hague Convention on the return of a child to his country of residence.

We remind you that the court decision of June 15, 2021 remains in force and establishes the legal framework for the well-being of the child. Your client refused to testify in court, but was represented by a court-appointed attorney at public expense. The decision was handed to your client, but she unfortunately chose not to comply with it.

Separately, it is emphasized that the Norwegian authorities accuse your client of kidnapping a minor, and that an international arrest warrant has been issued against her if she ever leaves Greece.

Recall, as the Athens News wrote earlier, on the evening of May 24, AMBER ALERT issued an alert about the kidnapping of 6-year-old boy Rainer Jason Petersen. The boy was abducted at 8:40 pm on Tuesday May 24 from the family home in the northern Athens suburb of Kifisia by a hooded man. The authorities are on the alert, as attempts are possible illegally take a child from Greece to Norway.

In conversation with OPEN TV the family’s lawyer said that the boy was at home with his grandmother when he heard a knock at the door and, thinking it was his mother, went to open the door. The hooded man grabbed the child and disappeared with him.

“Since then, he has been wanted by the police, significant efforts have been made, the authorities have been informed, border control mechanisms have been activated, because there is a high probability that they will try to take the child out of the country illegally,” he added.

According to the lawyer, neighbors said they saw one van and at least one man under the age of 45 in the area. The offender’s weight was slightly over the norm, and his height was 1.80 m. The child’s father has Norwegian citizenship and permanently resides in Norway. The child and his mother live in Greece.

The lawyer hinted that there were disagreements between the parents of the child, but did not go into details. He urged the authorities to consider all possibilities. All border control authorities and mechanisms were alerted “because it is very likely that a child could be illegally taken out of the country,” the lawyer added.

However, that is how it happened.
