COMMENT - Nightmare scenario

HAVING a child abducted and taken out of the country is just about every parent’s worst nightmare.

Sarah Taylor, who went through this ordeal when her ex-husband took their daughter Nadia to Libya, is now campaigning to close some of the loopholes and weaknesses in border security which allowed this to happen.

It seems reasonable that any child should be prevented from leaving unless both parents agree, and the technology exists to allow this. If one other parent is spared the nightmare of abduction, it will be worth it.
