    Dear Justice Minister, Mag. Dr. Beatrix Karl,

    Re Justice For Samuel and Benjamin Schlesinger

    It is on public record that you vowed to make 2012 a ‘special year for judicial reform.’ You specifically referred to improvements in family law and anti-corruption laws.

    I am writing to express my serious concern with regard to irregularities in the Austrian judicial process which have led to the above children being removed from their mother (Beth Schlesinger) and full and immediate custody being awarded to their father( Michael Schlesinger).

    I accept contested custody cases are frequently highly charged and emotionally stressful for all affected parties. However, this case raises questions of malpractice and incompetence which go right to the heart of the integrity of the Austrian justice system.

    On 25th July 2011, Judge Susanne Göttlicher ruled that the twins should be removed from their mother as a result of a court commissioned clinical psychologist’s report which falsely diagnosed her as being mentally ill. Subsequent court commissioned reports have confirmed that Ms Schlesinger is not mentally ill and has never suffered from mental health problems at any time in the past.

    Social Services reports suggesting the boys are being well cared for by Mr Schlesinger have not included proper or extensive assessments of his interaction with the boys. No assessment of Ms Schlesinger’s contact with the boys has been made.

    Contrary to Social Services assertions, the boys' development is seriously impaired as manifested by their lack of speech and the fact they are still not toilet trained at the age of four.

    In addition to these flawed assessments, there is compelling evidence that a senior judge, Konstanze Thau, has inappropriately interfered in the case by making private representations on behalf of the father to the judge presiding over the case.

    In the light of this catalogue of irregularities I am urging you to use your good office to speed up the legal process and ensure fair and transparent decisions are made about the best interests of the Schlesinger twins.

    Clearly, as requested by Ms Schlesinger’s lawyer, this process should be presided over by a new judge who is not compromised by any prejudicial interest. The reputation of the Austrian legal system is at stake and therefore I urge you to take appropriate action.

    Yours Sincerely,

      Your Name (required)
