By court order she took her three minor daughters to her house in Volos for a few days and never returned them to their father, in Rhodes, who had taken care of them.

Detain the children illegally nine months home, not caring that they didn’t go to school either they organized with their father an escape from their mother’s house.

The 40-year-old mother was sentenced to 10 months in prison with a three-year suspension by the Three-member Misdemeanor Court of Volos for kidnapping minors. Since 2015 when she divorced her husband, her custody of her three minor daughters was taken away as it was deemed unsuitable.

When by court order she was given the possibility to see the girls and host them at Bullet for the Christmas holidays, she decided not to return them to their father. He kept them illegally from January 7, 2019 to September 2019, without being sent by school.

Tuesday, in court appeared without a lawyer and argued that her girls should not communicate with their father because they were not having a good time and were fending for themselves. He forbade them to communicate with him and kept them “hostage”, otherwise they would not find a way to negotiate with their father and run away from home, for Rhodes.

“They returned to their father without me knowing,” he said in court and admitted that today he communicates with them only through social networks. Today the girls are 18, 17 and 15 years old respectively.
