The British High Commission (BHC) has always been generous to arrange capacity building programs to enhance the competence and efficiency of our judiciary. Now BHC has arranged an orientation on ‘The Hague Convention of October 25, 1980, on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction,’ for young judicial officers. International law experts know that the ‘Hague Convention’ was a multilateral treaty, which seeks to protect children from being abducted and also provides information on how to arrange their prompt return. This will go a long away to provide significant information about international co-operation in the area of child abduction. I am confident that the British High Commission will hold more orientations to facilitate communication, collaboration and cooperation between nations to safeguard children.
