I have mixed feelings about this article.There seems to be a few things mentioned that seem strange. One being that when the daughter saw her mother at a chance encounter she screamed, yet had happily lived with her 4 months prior to this? Seems like someones outside influence here! And if she is a risk to the eldest and refused contact, why does she have residence of her youngest - in prison of all places!!! Why hasnt the dad got the baby? Why was the baby left with childminders in Ireland until she was handed over to the mother in prison? All a bit strange to me.
I have a very acrimonious relationship with my stbxh. I have had to involve the police a few ties and there are concerns for my daughter welfare when she is in his care. However, i will never make allegations of any form of abuse towards him to ''get what i want''. And the thought of coaching my daughter to repeat such vile things makes me feel physically sick.
As bad as making up false allegations of sexual abuse is, I don''t believe they would normally take the child away even though they should do?
Most of all, it is very surprising that she got three years for making contact at the petrol station.Even rapists often don''t even get that.
However she could have destroyed her ex''s life with these allegations so who cares.
Its also disturbing the very sympathetic tone the journalist seems to have taken.
How about getting the ex''s version of events and how the allegations affected him etc.
