The Regional Court in Zielona Góra refused to extradite the Norwegian woman who fled to Poland with her three children, having suffered violence at the hands of the children’s father. This was the second attempt by the Kingdom of Norway to bring the mother back to the country. Norwegian authorities had sent a European Arrest Warrant for her, but later withdrew it.
The Regional Court in Warsaw confirmed that Martin den Hertog, a Dutch boy with autism, will be allowed to remain with his parents in Poland. The child was separated from the married couple in the Netherlands when he started displaying symptoms of a developmental disorder.

It is often the case that the exercise of women’s rights is hindered by the ideological approach to their very concept. The gender perspective often leads to misrepresentations which are primarily rooted in the perception of gender merely as a social construct, detached from its biological dimension.
