New Delhi, Feb.28 (ANI): The Child Welfare Service in Stavanger, Norway, has completed its talks with the uncle in the child welfare case concerning two Indian children.
According to a Norway Embassy release, the child welfare service has concluded that the care of the two children should be awarded to the brother of the children's father enabling him to take the children back to India.
This arrangement requires, however, that the Child Welfare Service ensures that the necessary legal framework and follow-up procedures are in place in order to safeguard the children's best interests and enable the uncle to deal with the situation in the best possible way.
The proposed solution will be presented to Stavanger District Court, which will take the final decision in the case. The provisional date for the hearing has been set for March 23.
The Norwegian authorities will ask the Indian authorities to ensure the necessary follow-up for the children in the event of their return to India.
In order to process the case concerning the two Indian children, who were taken into the care of Stavanger municipality and placed in a Norwegian foster home, the Child Welfare Service has had to apply for an extension to the children's residence permits.
Extending the residence permit for the children in a case such as this is a practical technicality and does not mean that the Child Welfare Service is seeking to keep the children in Norway for longer than is necessary to arrive at a satisfactory solution to the case. (ANI)
