In re E (Children)(Abduction: Custody Rights) [2011] UKSC 27; [2011] WLR (D) 191

“The application of article 13b of the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction (1980) required that the best interests of the child concerned was a primary consideration for the court requested to return an abducted child and, consequently, there was no conflict between the Hague Convention and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and no obvious conflict with the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.”
