Award winning film director Bill Maloney is refused entrance to the Inner London Family Proceedings Court to support a young couple who were having their 10 month old baby girl taken away from them.
CAUTION: Some strong language!
This is yet another tragic example of the British authorities taking children from young parents right at the point of birth.
Reported recently in The Times: Reforms to open up the family courts to the media are at risk of being scuppered by mounting opposition from senior judges, lawyers, children’s groups and MPs, The Times has learnt.
Jack Straw wants to build on ground-breaking moves last year to open the family courts so that media reporting is not thwarted by the current wide ranging restrictions. But a second set of measures, designed to allow media reports on evidence and naming of witnesses, has run into heavy opposition.
Award winning filmmaker and survivor of abuse in care Bill Maloney produces gritty, cutting edge documentaries focusing on the exposure of Institutional child abuse. Find out more about his work and unorthodox approach at: www.pienmashfilms.com
