Sayonara Baby [electronic resource]: Japan's Legal Barriers to Parental Rights

ABC International
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Returning home to find her two children and her Japanese-born husband gone, Regan Haight soon discovered that Japanese law and custom were heavily stacked against her. But Haight's isn't the only case in which the Japanese legal system is on the side of a kidnapper spouse. Australian Chayne Inaba has long battled for access to his daughter, to no avail. Craig Morrey first saw his daughter fleetingly in a courtroom when she was six months old. And Alex Kahney was forced to return to Britain, leaving behind two little girls abducted by their Japanese mother. Japan has long resisted signing an international agreement laying out the rules for these cases, and although Japanese leaders have signaled that their position could change, the so-called left-behind parents still struggle to keep their hopes alive. This program investigates heartbreaking examples of mothers and fathers trapped in a Kafkaesque hell, unable to see their children and stymied by an unfathomable legal labyrinth.
