The case about Norwegian Silje Garmo and her two year old daughter Eira who in December 2018 were granted asylum in Poland, will be raised by European parliamentarians, lawyers, and child care experts as an official «Side Event» during the session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) in Strasbourg in the last week of June.
The Council of Europe has decided that the meeting will take place on Tuesday, June 25th at 13:00.
This is almost exactly one year after PACE passed a resolution about Child Protection Services (CPS) on June 28th, 2018, which was investigated by the rapporteur Valeriu Ghiletchi on behalf of the Council of Europe. The PACE-resolution criticized the CPS, and was passed with 72 percent of the vote.
A «Side Event» in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe is a hearing, and has an unquestionable influential value in the build-up for formal political and judicial forums.
Silje Garmo is the only Norwegian citizen to have been granted asylum in a European nation since the atrocities of nazism during the Second World War.
Silje Garmo is represented by the lawyer Jerzy Kwasniewski who is the President of the Ordo Iuris Institute in Warsaw, Poland.
Parliamentarians in the Council of Europe are organizing the hearing in cooperation with the Ordo Iuris Institute and Christian Coalition World of Norway (KKN).
