(Family Division, Keehan J, 30 October 2013)
The judge had found that the maternal grandparents and aunt had lied about their knowledge of the whereabouts of the mother and child and that they had the means of contacting them but refused to disclose that information to the court.
Following those proceedings the mother was made aware of the judge's findings and contacted the court stating that she would return to the jurisdiction with the child.
With that outcome in mind the judge sentenced the three family members to 12 days' imprisonment which taking into account the time served on remand provided for their immediate release.
