Hague not a priority….Japan will sign the Hague

Posted on January 20, 2013. Filed under: Child Abduction, Hague Convention | Tags: , , , , |

I am a bit confused. Two articles came out on the same day. Three articles in the last 3 days. One says Hague on fast track, another say Japan will join the treaty, and the third says treaty is not a priority. It seems clear that politicians and bureaucrats are not on the same page and nothing is going to happen in the next diet session. Japan has been saying for over 10 years they will sign the Hague. There are still a large number of lawyers that disagree about signing the Hague. I don’t think this treaty will be signed until there is an overwhelming consensus that it is a good thing.
