Sarah Wasaya comments on child abduction case involving Ukrainian billionaire Sergiy Tigipko

A High Court judge has taken the exceptional step of naming a mother and her father in a child abduction case.

Mr Justice Nicholas Mostyn recently lifted reporting restrictions on former Ukrainian deputy prime minister Sergiy Tigipko and his daughter Ganna, after they failed to return her two daughters back to the UK.

Usually family members are named only when the whereabouts of the children are unknown.
