View From The Court
Raban v. Romania (no. 25437/08)
The applicants are David Raban, an Israeli and Dutch national who was born in 1957 and lives in Yehud (Israel), and his children, Ela Raban and Ilan Matzliah Raban, who were born in 2003 and 2004 respectively. Ela and Ilan have been living since April 2006 in Romania with their mother who was granted a divorce from Mr Raban and full custody of the children in December 2008. The case concerns Mr Raban’s complaint that the Romanian courts’ refusal to return his children to their habitual residence in Israel was in breach of the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.
