Justice Nancy Andrighi suspended return order
« on: April 29, 2010, 07:21:13 PM »
Decisão do STJ
A ministra Nancy Andrigui, do Superior Tribunal de Justiça (STJ), decidiu nesta quinta-feira que a ex-jogadora da seleção brasileira de vôlei, Hilma Aparecida Caldeira, deve ficar com seu filho até o final da disputa judicial com seu ex-marido, o americano Kelvin Birotte.

A briga pela criança K., de quatro anos, nascida nos Estados Unidos, foi iniciada em 2006, quando Birotte acusou Hilma por sequestro internacional de criança. A jogadora deixou aquele país quando o filho tinha um ano de idade.

A decisão do STJ se deu num mandado de segurança apresentado por Hilma depois de decisão da Justiça Federal de Minas Gerais, que no último dia 14 determinou que o filho fosse devolvido ao pai.

Hilma ficará com a guarda da criança até que o Tribunal Regional Federal (TRF) decida de forma definitiva quem deve ficar com o menor.

This is a huge injustice. Brazil must be made to abide by the Hague. I wonder if this case is
going to go on and on and on like David's, Tim's, François', Marty's, and all the others.
So totally unfair for the child and LBP. We really need H.R.3240 passed.

Drat ... I hate this woman. She is harming Brasil, children and LBPs. Had she voted correctly in 2007, Sean would have been home then (3 1/2 years earlier) by a 3-2 vote rather than a 2-3 vote. Now this? Somebody oughta disrobe her!

I wish I could say I was surprised that this decision is not being enforced, but the truth is I would have been surprised if it had been.  What does surprise me is that this is the same judge that screwed up the Goldman case.  This judge has absolutely no excuse for not having educated herself in the intervening years, especially after watching the results of her decision on Sean.  She needs to be disbarred from ever hearing another Hague case.. or any other case for that matter.

The son of four years of former volleyball player from Brazil Hilma Caldeira, 38, should remain in Brazilian territory, under the custody and care of the mother. The decision is the minister of the Superior Court of Justice (STJ) Nancy Andrighi. The minister has banned further that the child traveled abroad this Thursday until the end of the trial of this case by the Second Section of the STJ.

The former player traveled with the child to Brazil in April 2006, where he had entertained in the state court, his request for custody. The father, the American Kelvin Birotte. Hilma sued by international child abduction. She would have left the United States when the boy was only 1 year. On Jan. 14, the Federal Court of Mines decided that the boy should be returned to his father until this Thursday substantiated by the Hague Convention. Hilma's lawyers filed appeal in Brasilia.

The ruling by Judge John Otoni César de Matos, the 19 th Federal de Minas Gerais. In June last year, in a similar case, a federal court ruled that the boy Sean Goldman be returned to the biological father who lives in the United States, David Goldman. Who disputed custody of Sean, however, was his grandmother. Sean's mother died.

The defense of former player filed a writ of mandamus against the decision of the 19th Civil Court of the Judiciary Section Federal de Minas Gerais, arguing that there is less psychosocial impairment were removed from the conviviality of the mother and family in Brazil.

Nancy Andrighi The minister said in his ruling that "the child is inserted in an environment that will ensure, with absolute priority, the realization of full rights to life, health, nutrition, education, sports, leisure, culture, dignity, respect, freedom, and more than the family and community. "

So for the minister to withdraw the lower contact of the maternal family and friends, as determined by the Federal Court, violates the right given to every child to be raised and educated in the bosom of his family.

In its decision last June, the judge at any time thought of the child.
Our country surrendered to the threat of American retaliation.
Currently, the boy only appears in photos next to his father fishing boatmen, who lives the image of the child.

When the opposite happens, the father take the child to the U.S. and Brazilian American justice decides that the child should stay in the U.S., we must follow. So Brazilian women who want to get the green card through their children, beware!

The below AP story has been picked up by lots of the major print and online media outlets. Let's hope TV gets on the band wagon today and over the weekend to help raise awareness for Kelvin.

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) -- Brazil's top appeals court says a young boy must stay with his Brazilian mother and not his American father until a final ruling is made in their international abduction case.

Kelvin Birotte of Houston, Texas, has been fighting to regain custody of his 4-year-old son. The boy was taken by his mother -- Hilma Aparecida Caldeira, a former Olympic volleyball player -- to her native Brazil in 2006. She then divorced Birotte.

A court last week ordered Caldeira to hand the boy over by Thursday, basing its ruling on the Hague Convention on International Child Abduction.

Caldeira appealed the decision to the higher federal court, which issued its order late Thursday.

There is no indication of when a final ruling may come.

Doesn't Kelvin have the official support of his country? And the convention? Doesn't it mean anything? I would like to know where this lawyer read that? :madgo

This just makes me sick. When is Brazil going to get it? I don't know it will help but I'm faxing the AP article and others to every Rep and Senator in TX today, as well as the Houston Papers.

These court rulings are a slap in the face. If Brazil signed the Hague, they should abide by it and not make
up their own rules as they go alone.

Nice try pal, but that's not what Articles 12 and 13 say. This lawyer sounds a lot like Tostes. It's a shame that this same judge who screwed up the Goldman case years ago was allowed to screw up another Hague case and tarnish Brazil's reputation further.

I feel so bad for this father.  Brazil hasn't learned a thing since David's case.  Where on earth do they get the notion that it's OK to kidnap a child and then say they have acclimated to their kidnappers enviornment and they should stay there?  These judges are a bunch of clowns and could care less for the welfare of the children!!  This really infuriates me!  A child's well being is being compromised because of the stupidity of these idiots.  My prayers are with you.
