Family Law

The leading authority on all aspects of family law

27 SEP 2011

PRIVACY: Doncaster MBC v Haigh, Tune and X (By the Children's Guardian)

(Family Division; Sir Nicholas Wall P; 22 August 2011)

Allegations of sexual abuse of child by father were fabricated by the mother. A fact-finding hearing found the mother coached the child to make allegations which had been entirely false. The mother failed to recognise harm to the child and to allow contact between the child and father. The child was removed from the mother's care to live with the father. The mother was aided and abetted by another person, together they posted the allegations of sexual abuse on the internet, informed parents at the child's school and the father's work colleagues in breach of a court order. The local authority sought to disseminate judgment in order to put the record straight.#

Permission to report judgment granted and s 91(14) order in respect of the mother granted. Document produced with key information in the case to be published alongside the judgment.
