In re M and Another (Minors)

House of Lords

“The circumstances under which a court should refuse to order the return of a child who had been abducted from a state subscribing to the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction 1980 had been laid down under the Convention itself and it was neither necessary nor desirable for English courts to add an additional test of ‘exceptionality’ over and above the requirements of the Convention.”
