Morocco. Hague Abduction Convention. Update.

Posted by Jeremy Morley | Apr 20, 2010 | 0 Comments

Morocco has acceded to the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, effective June 1, 2010. It is the 82nd party to the treaty.

Thus far Morocco's accession has been accepted by only two countries, Israel and the Netherlands. The treaty will enter into force with respect to those countries on June 1, 2010.

Caveat: Unless and until a treaty country formally accepts the accession, the treaty is not in force with respect to abductions between Morocco and that country.
