Another kidnapping case in Brazil and the AP gets the terms right

There is another kidnapping case (of many) of a child of American and Brazilian parents.

This case like the Goldman case that was settled December 2009, is part kidnapping and part custody.

As the reporter, Tales Azzoni, points out, this is a kidnapping case under the Hague Convention.

During the Goldman case too many reports referred to it as a custody case, when the legal basis for all the arguments for the father were based on the Hague Convention.

I am glad to see that the AP got it right this time. Let’s hope other news organizations getting ready to do follow up stories on this new case also get it right.
