The House of Lords is to decide in a case involving a child taken by its grandmother and aunt to Ireland following the death of its mother who was an Irish citizen. The father fought the removal in the High Court claiming it was unlawful but his application for a declaration to that effect was dismissed. The Court of Appeal, headed by Lady Justice Butler-Sloss, overturned that decision, allowing an appeal by the father and declaring that removal of the child was unlawful under the European and Hague Conventions and the Child Abduction Act 1985. Now though, leave has been granted to the grandmother and aunt to appeal against that decision.
