Child abduction rule forces abuse victims back to Australia

From Morning Report, 6:21 am on 26 November 2018

New Zealand women fleeing domestic violence in Australia are being forced back across the ditch under an international child abduction agreement. The Hague Convention was created in 1980 to force the return of a child when one parent takes them from their country of residence. But nearly 40 years on, critics say it's being used to revictimise women who have fled abusive relationships, putting them on a path towards further abuse.
