Child abductions from Sweden rising

Abducted children on rise
(5:41 min)

Every year the number of children in Sweden who are abducted by a parent and brought to live in another country goes up. Since 2004 the number of cases managed by the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs has more than doubled, to the 120 cases currently managed by its department that handles international abductions.

Ia Sweger, a family lawyer who helps parents find and bring abducted children back to Sweden, says the upswing is caused by our increasingly globalized world.

"Most of these families are in international families and in international marriages. And it's also a consequence of the European Union market where there is also the free movement of people," says Sweger.
