|The same court which ordered the removal of the Wunderlich children in 2013, has again challenged the custody of the children by demanding proof of their school attendance.
The Wunderlich family were summoned to a court in Darmstadt, Germany, last week. The two younger children, who are still minors, and their parents were questioned in two separate hearings over two days.
Despite the right of parents to direct the education of their children being protected in international law, Dirk and Petra Wunderlich awoke one morning in 2013 to discover that more than 30 German police officers and social workers had come to seize custody of their four children.
The Wunderlich family has been in and out of court ever since, fighting to ensure respect for this fundamental right. Now, once again, they are fighting to keep custody of their children.
Please continue to pray for the Wunderlich family. Having brought their case to the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights, the highest level of the court, they wait for confirmation that it will be heard.
A good decision there would better protect the right of parents to direct the upbringing of their children in Germany and across Europe.
