Only 3.33 minutes – but distinctly the most salient ones:
- an interview with Carla and Jose Pedro whose 5 children were taken by Lincoln County Council, with the 2 youngest ones ‘ordered’ to be adopted; the consent of the parents can be dispensed with ‘in the interest of the children’;
- views of the Committee room where the public gallery was full and the petitioners between elected MEPs and members of the permanent EU Commission;
- an interview with Phil after he and Jose were sent to the British Consulate, since the Embassy didn’t want to receive our dossier.
Happy viewing on http://www.europarl.europa.eu/ep-live/en/committees/video?event=20140319-0900-COMMITTEE-PETI and leave a comment to suggest how to take things further!
Meanwhile check the latest news about the Portuguese Pedros who have been arrested for supposedly abducting their ‘4’ children. I wonder who couldn’t count to 5!…
