Hague Convention – first return order

Last week, a UK court ordered the return of a child to Japan under the auspices of the Hague Convention.  This is thought to be the first such judicial intervention involving Japan.  However, it very much remains to be seen whether the Japanese courts, when called upon to adjudicate in one of these disputes as they are bound to be before long, are going to be as prompt and receptive to such an application.  The case has not been widely reported as yet – there would, in any event, be reporting restrictions meaning that the names of the people involved and other information that might lead to them being identified cannot be disclosed – but at the time of writing you can read about it here and here.
