Letter to the Swedish Embassy in Pretoria

On 25 June 2009 armed police, at the behest of Swedish Social Services, boarded an airliner on its way to India from Sweden with the Johansson family and seized their 7 year-old boy, Domenic, for being homeschooled (which at that time was still legal in Sweden). There was no warrant; the Johanssons had broken no law. Since this date Domenic’s parents are only allowed short, 1 hour-long supervised visit once every five weeks. Domenic still remains in state custody. The father of Domenic has announced on 5 Oct. 2011 that he has received letters from the court  informing him that the social workers wish to move custody to the foster family. If the court grants the wishes of the social workers, this act would be equivalent to legalised child abduction.

The Association for Homeschooling has witten a letter to the Swedish Embassy in Pretoria requesting to convey the message to the Swedish government that South African parents wish for the reunification of the Johannsen family, as well as the recognition of the rights of Swedish parents to choose the kind of education that should be given to their children.
