Precious friends and family,

I have set up a petition to create an awareness of my Hague case. It has been over two years since the abduction of my children. Ben and Caelin, then 5 and 3 respectively, were abducted by my ex-husband in August 2012 and taken to Portugal without my consent or knowledge. Although this is officially a Hague case in South Africa, and I have joint custody of the boys, the High Court in Portugal ruled that due to the false allegations of my ex-husband, they would need to hear my witness testimonials in order for them to decide whether or not my case is a Hague case. I am still waiting on the questions from the Family Court in Seixal for my witness testimonials, so that my witnesses can be subpoenaed to their local magistrate’s court to give testimony on my behalf. Until this happens, my case cannot be heard as a Hague case in Portugal.

Please help me to voice my petition. I want the court to know that I am not a nameless person lost in a public system of paperwork. I want the court to know that I am a mother, and that I have rights, as do my children. I want the court to declare my case a Hague case and return my beautiful boys back to South Africa. I want the court to know that I believe that justice will prevail and that the boys will know my Love again. I also want the court to know that I have public support and that there are those that will vouch for me both personally and as a public figure in the false allegations and charges against me.

And lastly I ask you to sign my petition in support of a promise to my children.

Thank you. In much appreciation of you.

Anrita Melchizedek

To the Family Court of Seixal,


I want you to know who I am. My name is Anrita Melchizedek and I am a mother. In August 2012, my ex-husband, a Portuguese National, abducted my two boys, Ben and Caelin, then 5 and 3 respectively. He took them to Portugal without my consent or knowledge, and this is how, I, as a South African citizen ended up in your court.


During this time I have almost no contact with my children. I have been falsely accused of sexually abusing my children, amongst many other distressing allegations, all of which are untrue.


Although this is officially a Hague case in South Africa, I am still waiting on the questions from the Family Court of Seixal for my witness testimonials so that my case can be heard as a Hague case in Portugal. Despite numerous requests to the court, I have still not received these questions.


The court system appears to have failed myself and my children. My children continue to endure the distress of the emotional and physical alienation of their birth mother. Their ongoing heartache and pain and the emotional trauma this is causing them must stop.


I know within my heart that you are defenders of justice, and I believe that justice will prevail. I believe that my children will be returned back home to me, and that they will know my Love. They will be given the opportunity to know I have always loved them, and that I have never hurt them or harmed them in anyway. I am a good, loving mother and have always put my children first. I want you to hear the promise that I make to my children.


Bennie and Caelin, I promise that you will hear my laugher and experience the joy of our re-union.


I promise that we will play on the beach, eat ice-cream, swim and watch the sunset.


I promise to always be your guardian as long as you need me.


I promise to find the balance in my own life that will always put your best interests first.


I promise to see your highest potential, to encourage you, to spiritually nurture you, and to spend as much time as I can with you.


I promise to protect you as best I can, and to always love you unconditionally.


I promise to do everything I can to find a pathway of reconciliation with your Dad.


I promise to honour your right to Love and respect your father and to have him in your lives in every way possible.


I promise to always fight for you so that justice will prevail and that you will know my Love.


                                                          


To the Family Court of Seixal, I ask you to declare my case a Hague case and return my children to South Africa.


I ask my friends and family to sign this petition in support of my Hague case, and as testimony to my character and the promise I have made to my children, Ben and Caelin.


 


Thank you.


I am Anrita Melchizedek and I am a mother.

Uma promessa para os meus filhos


 


Ao Tribunal de Família do Seixal,


Exmºs Srs. Gostaria que soubessem quem sou. O meu nome é Anrita Melchizedek e sou uma mãe. Em Agosto de 2012, o meu ex-marido, de nacionalidade portuguesa, raptou os meus filhos Ben e Caelin, na altura com 5 e 3 anos respectivamente. Levou-os para Portugal sem o meu conhecimento ou consentimento e foi assim que eu, cidadã sul-africana, tive que recorrer a justiça.


Durante todo este tempo quase não tenho tido contacto com os meus filhos. Fui mesmo falsamente acusada de os abusar sexualmente, para além de muitas outras acusações, todas elas falsas.


Apesar de, na África do Sul, se tratar já de um caso de Haia, continuamos a aguardar que o Tribunal de Família do Seixal tenha a amabilidade de inquirir minhas testemunhas para que se possa tratar também de uma caso de Haia em Portugal. Apesar das inúmeras solicitações, ainda não recebemos esse inquérito.


Sendo assim, o sistema de justiça esta a falhar aos meus filhos e a mim, permitindo a perpetuação de abusos emocionais, separação da mãe e toda a dor e sofrimento que isso envolve e que deveria parar o quanto antes.


Sei, no meu coração, que Vªs Exªs são defensores da justiça e tenho esperança que a justiça ira prevalecer. Acredito que os meus filhos irão regressar a casa, junto a mim. Acredito que sabem o quanto os Amo, apesar das mentiras que possam estar a ouvir ou da dificuldade que tenho tido em comunicar com eles livremente. Eles sabem que sempre os amei, que nunca os magoei, que sou uma boa mãe e que sempre os coloquei, e coloco, em primeiro lugar. Sendo assim, gostaria de partilhar com Vªs Exªs a promessa que faço aos meus filhos.


Bennie e Caelin, eu prometo que iremos ter a alegria de voltar a estar juntos.


Prometo que iremos brincar na praia, comer os gelados, nadar e contemplar o pôr do sol, como fazíamos.


Prometo ser a vossa guardiã sempre que precisarem.


Prometo envolver-vos nas minhas “asas de amor” e desimpedir o caminho, para que possam encontrar o vosso próprio caminho.


Prometo manter o equilíbrio na minha vida e o vosso interesse em primeiro lugar.


Prometo ver o vosso potencial, encorajar-vos, nutrir-vos e ter tempo livre para estarmos juntos.


Prometo proteger-vos o melhor que conseguir e o que meu Amor por vós seja sempre incondicional.


Prometo continuar a procurar formas de reconciliação com o vosso Pai.


Prometo que o vosso Pai continuará sempre a fazer parte da vossa vida.


Prometo que não irei colocar obstáculos se, quando forem mais velhos, quiserem ir viver com ele.


Prometo continuar a lutar por vós, por nós, para que a justiça prevaleça e para que não se esqueçam o quanto vos Amo.


Ao Tribunal de Família do Seixal peço, assim, que este caso seja declarado um caso de Haia e para que os meus filhos possam voltar para junto de mim.


Peço, ainda, aos meus amigos e família, para assinarem esta petição enquanto testemunho do meu carácter e da promessa que aqui faço aos meus filhos Ben e Caelin.


 


Bem hajam,


 


Eu sou Anrita Melchizedek e sou uma mãe
