The Norwegian Centre for Human Rights at the University of Oslo has since 2001 had the status of a
national institution in Norway. However, in 2012, the UN degraded this institution from A to B status.

Degradation means that the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights no longer has the right to speak in the various UN monitoring bodies.

With B status, the Centre can no longer vote in the international network and cannot receive positions in this system.

For a national human rights institution to achieve A status, it must satisfy the so-called Paris Principles. According to these principles, the National Institution (NI) must be regulated by a separate act, it must be assured influence through institutionalised channels as well as being a visible driving force and receiving sufficient funding.

About the upcoming event in Tallinn at the end of next week:

I represent the international community who is holding a big event in Tallinn, Estonia the 25th, 26th of November.

Marius Reikeras is coming with a press-conference, seminar and to participate in the round table with various authoritative figures.

He is bringing a lot of stunning facts about crimes against humanity in Norway. This information is very relevant for Baltic countries since we are misled and take Norway as an example in human rights. This is an unprecedented event, because we managed to bring together 11 parents and lawyers organizations from Baltic, Scandinavian countries, Portugal and England.

We work together because we want to attract society attention to the problems of parents and children rights and also to human rights in general.

We have contacted many people, who are on one wave with us from across Europe to provide our event with a statement of support.

We know that Januzs Korwin Mikke is one of these courageous people who stand tall in defense of families and humanity. We would be the most grateful if he could write few words saying that he support our effort and how real the problem is. It would be even better if he could record a short video message like John Hemming, former MP from England.

The message will be spread wide over international press, since we are already having a lot of attention from journalist across Europe. We thank you for any input.

Best Regards, Parents of Estonia, Parents of Latvia, Parents of Lithuania, Nordic Committee for Human Rights, Portuguese lawyers against Forced Adoption, Tomas Zdechovsky, Johm Hemming and others...

Dear friends.

Today my Human Rights work in Norway, has been found to be illegal by the Bergen City court.

I was not allowed to be present in the trial.

The judgment is not final and will be appealed, but I have decided to protest against this evil regime,by closing down my Human Rights work in Norway .

I will carry on and speed up my work internationaly, as the world needs to be aware of the crimes against humanity that takes place here, and how the regime shuts down the voices of those who try to battle it.

From this moment, I will not be on Facebook, and the protest will carry on until I have the necessary guarantees not lenger being harrased by the Norwegian authorites.

We have an increasing numbers of heavy international politicians with us, further in this human struggle in Norway now.
Janusz Korwin-Mikke is one of them.
He is Poland's by far the most famous and popular politician.

For me this is not about party affiliation, but a joint struggle to make it clear that we are all equal for equal before the law, and that time is up for the power of people who destroy our lives by violating our human rights.

Strictly speaking, should Norway have figured this out for yourself, and not now being met with growing condemnation abroad for its massive human rights violations.

These words were delivered by the European Court of Human Rights on 13th of September this year:

"Furthermore, no legal provision of domestic law should be interpreted and applied in a manner incompatible with the respondent State's obligations under the Convention (see Stanková v. Slovakia, no. 7205/02, § 24, 9 October 2007)."

And these words reveal why Norway is constantly violating the Human Rights, as Norwegian judges, only on very rare occasions, pay attention to the European Courts case law.

As fighting parents we cannot express how extremly grateful we are for men like Tomáš Zdechovský and Marius Reikerås, from Our Hearts we thank you for this, and you both will always have a BIG place in the stories that Aria will hear when she is old enough to understand who truly fought for her freedom and human rights to be with her loving family.
So from Our Hearts THANK YOU...

Marius Reikerås writes this on his Facebook today, and posted this picture.

Tomáš Zdechovský and I have made an agreement, never to give up the fight against the Human Rights crimes that unfortunately take place in Norway, affecting thousands and thousands of people.

I know that the Government as well as the legal system find us troublesome,as they want to continue violating the Human Rights without too much interference and in silence.

But we will continue as long as it takes, to get rid of all the officials who commit Human Rights crimes to others.

And I am happy to see that our peaceful Human Rights movement, is making big progress Remember what Zdechovský told you on June 11th in Oslo:

"If you sleep in a democracy,you will wake up in a dictatorship."

In Resolution 2049 (2015) on social services in Europe: legislation and practice of the removal of children from their families in Council of Europe member States, the Parliamentary Assembly recommended that, except in urgent cases, initial decisions of removal of children from their families be based only on court orders, in order to avoid unwarranted removal decisions.

Removal decisions shall be taken where the child is judged to be at risk or imminent risk of suffering serious harm, in particular physical, sexual or psychological abuse, or of being badly neglected. However, in some Council of Europe member States, decisions of removal of children may be sometimes taken for reasons that have little to do with the best interests of the child principle.

In this respect it is worth mentioning a number of cases involving the Norwegian Child Welfare Service (Barnevernet). For example, in November 2015, the Bodnariu family, a mixed Romanian-Norwegian family living in Norway, saw their five children - including a three months breastfed child - removed in an abusive way and placed within different temporary foster families far from their parents which were also prevented from seeing them. Other similar abusive removals involve foreign parents from Slovakia, Lithuania, Russia or Germany.

Such removal decisions taken by Barnevernet, an administrative body, are not based on court orders, nor conducted under the supervision of a judge/prosecutor, nor subject to judicial review in order to make sure that the administrative interim order is founded, lawful, proportionate and not abusive.

While children have the right to be protected from all types of violence, abuse and neglect, they also have the right not to be wrongly separated from their parents against their will.

In its 1996 Judgment in the case Johansen v. Norway, the European Court of Human Rights considered, in the light of Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, that "taking a child into care should normally be regarded as a temporary measure to be discontinued as soon as circumstances permit and that any measures of implementation of temporary care should be consistent with the ultimate aim of reuniting the natural parent and the child".

Mr Valeriu GHILETCHI,

To ask the Committee of Ministers,

What steps does the Committee of Ministers intend to take to ensure that Norway respect the European Convention on Human Rights with regard to the removal of children from their families and the refusal or the limitation of parents' access to their children?

The pressure against Norway, is rising int the European Parliament:

"In this context, I would like to note that by her virtue, the Commissioner for Children of the Slovak Republic addressed letter to the Norwegian Ombudsman for Children, Ms. Anne Lindboe, pointing out the recent case-law of the European Court
concerning removal of children from their biological families, from which the above mentioned principles are arising (Annex No. 1).

The Commissioner has called without success for the intensification of the contact between minor x and her
biological parents.

For this reason the Commissioner requested me to inform the
Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe about the case pointing out the activities of Romanian member of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, Dr. Ben-Oni Ardelean in the Bodnariu case."


Norways Human Rights abuses

@europarl.europa.eu

Member of the European Parliament, Januz Korwin- Mikke.

Dear Sir.

First I would like to express my great-fullness of your participation in the demonstration against Norwegian Human Rights crimes, outside the Norwegian Embassy in Warsaw on July 8 this year.

It was an honor to meet you.

It means a lot to the Norwegian people who suffer, that their sufferings are being seen by those who exercise power in the European Parliament.

You met young people on this day who saw no other choices, but to escape from the persecution in Norway.

You reach out to an exceptional number of people, as you have close to 800 000 followers on Facebook.

The fact that you took from your time to show support and solidarity with those who suffer in Norway, is highly appreciated,and very important in the battle against Human Rights crimes.

I write to you with an urgent plea, to maintain the international pressure on Norway.

Norwegian authorities had to "solve" the Bodnariu- case as a result of the international pressure, but to me it seems like the same
authorities are conducting a "revenge- campaign" against other parents who do not get the same attention as what the Bodnariu- family has received.

Some of them with whom you met in Warsaw this day.

Just like some of the people who showed up in Warsaw, the Bodnariu family has also escaped. To Romania.

People are being threatened and punished as a result of using their freedom of speech on social medias, especially when they publish things the authorities do not like.

We live in a regime in which more and more people are exposed to reprisals by the system.

Let me give you an example from a recent case:

A 20 year old woman gave birth to a little boy in autumn 2015.

A few months later, the little child was literately taken from the
mother's arms by numerous police and child welfare workers, in her home.

Since then, the child has been kept on secret address, and just before the rally in Warsaw, the mother was in court to try to get her child back.

Unsuccessfully, like most cases. Because in Norway the government wins in more than 90 % of the cases.

The fact that she has had a difficult childhood herself, was being used against her by the government, on the basis that she lacked "parental abilities."

The Upper Romerrike City Court argued as follows:

"X has had a difficult childhood. She has been subjected to severe
neglect when she was younger.

Basic parental skills, what is called intuitive care , are features people acquire when they have experienced good care "

When I read this quote from judge Karen Wendel Sandaa, I realize that I live in a society which segregates people based upon their past.

With these words, the judge tramples on all those
who have experienced difficulties through their childhood, and inflict upon them irreversible pain by ruling on the loss of their biological children.

This judgement is exempt from the public, and it clearly shows that
courts in Norway refuse to abide to the international Conventions in
which Norway is a party to.

The court further writes:

"When the cause of public care order is primarily related to the biological parents' lack of emotional skills, partly due to weak parental ability level, it must be assumed that the care order is of long-term nature.

This is another clear violation of Article 8 of the ECHR Convention, which states that taking a child into public care is a temporary measure to be discontinued as soon as circumstances permit.

And since French media covered the case, the court decided to punish the mother by reducing the togetherness with her son, to only a few hours per year.

Without the support from Europe, we stand no chance in fighting the Norwegian systems hostile attitude to our fundamental Human Rights.

I therefore insistently aks for your support and that the international pressure on Norway to be maintained.

Your sincerely,

Marius Reikerås

On 2 June 2016, the European Parliamentary Assembly approved Dr. Ardelean´s measure to create a draft report considering to what extent Norway's Barnevernet is violating Council of Europe standards.

The report will include recommended legal
reforms for Norway and countries with similar systems for protection of children.

One of my dedicated international friends, just wrote this to me:

Had a great meeting with two international lawyers. They are very concerned about Norway and they would like to come over and meet with other lawyers in Norway and also with victims like Amy and see how they can help. They actually take cases to the ECHR. They're dealing with similar cases in other countries so they knew already what was going on. Also they'd like to support our campaign.


The European Court of Human Rights asks Norway:

Has there been a violation of the applicant's right to respect for her family life, contrary to Article 8 of the Convention, through the national authorities' decisions not to terminate the public care of X, and in particular, to refuse the applicant contact rights with X and to keep X's place of residence secret from the applicant?

K and T v Finland:

"168. However, the taking of a new-born baby into public care at the moment of its birth is an extremely harsh measure. There must be extraordinarily compelling reasons before a baby can be physically removed from the care of its mother, against her will, immediately after birth as a consequence of a procedure in which neither she nor her partner has been involved. The shock and distress felt by even a perfectly healthy mother are easy to imagine."


8/6-2016


Why Norway fails to comply with its Human Rights obligations:

Article 46 of the Convention, reads:

"1. The High Contracting Parties undertake to abide by the final judgment of the Court in any case to which they are parties.

2. The final judgment of the Court shall be transmitted to the Committee of Ministers, which shall supervise its execution."

One of the most significant features of the Convention system is that it includes a mechanism for reviewing compliance with the provisions of the Convention.

Thus, the Convention does not only require Norway to
observe the rights and obligations deriving from it, but also respect the European Court of Human Rights, which is empowered to find violations of the Convention in final judgments by which the States Parties have undertaken to abide (Article 19, in conjunction with Article 46 § 1).

However Norway disregard from this, claiming that decisions from the Supreme Court are final and can be enforced.

As regards the requirements of Article 46, it should first be noted
that if Norway is found to have breached the Convention or its Protocols, is under an obligation to abide by the Court's decisions in any case to which it is a party.

In other words, a total or partial failure to execute
a judgment of the Court can engage Norway's international
responsibility.

Norway will be under an obligation not just to pay those concerned the sums awarded by way of just satisfaction,
but also to take individual and/or, if appropriate, general measures in its domestic legal order to put an end to the violation found by the Court and to redress the effects, the aim being to put the applicant, as far as possible, in the position he would have been in had the requirements of the Convention not been disregarded

"is always an interference with the right to respect for family life, and entails a violation of Article 8 [ art. 8 ] unless it was

«in accordance with the law»,

had an aim or aims that is or are legitimate under Article 8 § 2 (art. 8-2)

and was «necessary in a democratic society»

These are not mine, but the words of the judges in the highest Court of Europe: The European Court of Human Rights.

Having a commitment to human rights, is highly recommended for everyone.
Not only is a very important work.

It leads to meeting a lot of nice and interesting people along the way.

And to create comfort and quality of life, increases energy to continue the work.

It also transpires from the ECHR Article 46 that the state is obligated to abide by EHC and its decisions and make the repair in fully, and if this is not done this triggers a state responsibility at the international level, cf. Verein gegen Tierfabriken against Switzerland (2009 ) pkt.85.
