Judgment: An appeal against an order for three children to be returned to Germany, following their wrongful removal to Wales and then England by the mother. This appeal was brought by the eldest child, who argued that the judge's approach had been flawed, first, as to whether the child should have had separate representation, and second, regarding the child's objections to returning to Germany. In Moylan LJ's view, the judge had reached the right decisions. The decision not to join the child was "plainly right", and the judge had not given too much weight or insufficient weight to any relevant factor. King LJ and Patten LJ agreed, and the applications were dismissed.
