The European Court of Human Rights found the Norwegian child protection services to have violated parental rights in another in a series of rulings on the subject issued in the past several months. The right to respect for family life was once again infringed upon by the Barnevernet. One of the cases involved a Polish woman whose son was taken away. The Pole was allowed only two visits per year, before being completely prohibited from seeing him despite positive opinions by doctors, psychologists, and kindergarten authorities.
Norway posts many cases of human rights violations, including the right to the protection of family life, by Barnevernet, a controversial agency for children.
The European Court of Human Rights has issued another in a series of rulings against Norway, this time in the case of a violation of the right to family life by the Barnevernet – Norway’s child protective services.
The Third Committee of the UN General Assembly, which deals with social, humanitarian and cultural issues, adopted a series of resolutions on matters such as children’s, women’s and family rights.
Norway is notorious for human rights infringements, in particular when it comes to respecting family life. The European Court of Human Rights will soon rule on a case involving a group of families torn apart by the country’s child welfare services – the Barnevernet.
