However, in an unprecedented way, this story ended with the return of the children – mainly due to the involvement of the Slovak government. Not just the Embassy here in London. That was not enough:
- a major demonstration was staged outside the UK Embassy in Bratislava
- Slovak TV reported about The Absurdity of Social Services in the UK
- the Slovak Republic joined the case as a third party
- the Slovak Republic examined Human Rights regarding wrongful adoptions in the UK.
That could NOT quite be ignored by the Court of Appeal and the return of the boys was promised before 4th January.
Today, on the first day of the New Year, the plane landed in Bratislava!
On 4th January, Christopher Booker told the story in the second part of his weekly column in The Telegraph: Free at last – a Slovak Family Happily Reunited.
