THREE children with dual Spanish-Mexican nationality were forcibly returned to Mexico.
Their mother acted illegally in bringing the twins of 10 and a 13-year-old to Spain in 2010, a Valencia judge ruled.
The mother, Isabel Monros, had hoped that after psychological tests the courts would decide the children would benefit by staying with her in Alboraya. Their father is “abusive,” she has insisted throughout the case.
After talking to the children, the judge threw out her request and ordered the children to be taken to live in Mexico with their father, Jaime Cuevas.
There were hysterical scenes inside the courtroom with relatives and friends trying to prevent the children from leaving with their father.
This was the second occasion that they attempted to take the law into their own hands after a crowd of 300 attempted to stop the Guardia Civil from removing the children from Monros’s home earlier this month.
The hysterical mother flung herself on the bonnet of a Guardia Civil patrol as Cuevas drove off with the three children.
“No-one can be happy in a case like this,” admitted Cuevas’s lawyer. “But a court order has to be obeyed,” he said.
