In re M and another (Minors) [2007] UKHL 55

“The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction 1980 had laid down the circumstances under which the return of a child who had been abducted from a contracting state could be refused, and it was neither necessary nor desirable that English courts should import an additional test of ‘exceptionality’ into the exercise of discretion provided for by the Convention.”
