BEIRUT, February 22 â€” RIA Novosti. The girl’s father from Russia, the disappearance of which in Vienna had earlier said her mother, believes that his decision to take away the child can not be regarded as abduction.
Earlier, a source in Russian law enforcement agencies told RIA Novosti that three-year-old girl from Russia was kidnapped in Vienna. According to sources, the kidnapping occurred on 28 December last year in the hotel “Bianca”, accommodation in Vienna, the girl could take the father-a foreigner. The representative of the Department of state police of Vienna Irina Steiner reported RIA Novosti that the police of Vienna does not matter about the kidnapping of three Russians, so far “we are talking about the civil case.” The RF IC opened a criminal case on the abduction.
“There is a notion that the father or mother can’t kidnap your own child. Here the word “stole” is inappropriate, and I don’t want to use it. I think any man thinks so. And the court is not a kidnapping,” said the girl’s father Majdi al-Ali Salah in an interview with RIA Novosti.
According to him, once he found out that his ex-wife filed for child abduction, he immediately turned to the consular Department of the Embassy of Russia in Beirut, as it has both Russian and Lebanese citizenship.
“I do not hide from anyone, no law enforcement, no court or Lebanon,” he stressed.
