Problem

Unlawful repatriation of minors

Nature:
A minor is a person who has not attained his or her majority under the applicable law and does not have the right to determine his or her place of residence. The involuntary repatriation of minors may occur when a minor is in the territory of a state against the will of those responsible for protecting the interests of the minor; when the presence of the minor in the territory of a state is incompatible with the interests of the state; when the presence of the minor in the territory of the requested state is incompatible with a measure of protection or re-education taken in respect of him by the competent authorities of the requesting state; or when the presence of the minor is necessary in the territory of the requesting state because of the institution of proceedings there with a view to taking measures of protection or re-education in respect of him or her.
