Hi everyone, before we go to the episode with Scott McIntyre, I would like to remind everyone that we recently launched a petition targeted at the Japanese government to stand up for the 3million kids who have been trafficked since 1991, legally with the help of single custody laws in Japan. Japan does not recognize joint custody laws as the lawyers and judges profit from it and receive up to 30% of child support payments until the child reaches 20 years of age! While it’s a gain for the lawyers and judges, this is a loss-loss situation for the children and parents affected by the single custody law.Winning this campaign depends on our ability to call on thousands of supporters like you. Your signature(support) is all that we need. Please support our petition and tell the International Organizations and the government to pressure Japan to adopt a joint custody law. You can find the petition at https://www.change.org/jointcustodyjapan.
Now, in today's episode we are speaking to an Australian named Scott McIntyre who have been making waves when it comes to the issue of child abduction and parental alienation In Japan.
Scott was detained for 45 days in Tokyo for trespassing when he went to his in-laws’ apartment to seek information on his two children. He remains married, has no restraining order against him, retains full parental rights, but has not been able to see his children since May 2019, when his wife left with them. While researching for the our petition, I watched a video of Scott on YouTube, and I knew that we needed to get him on the podcast to explain further why the petition that we created is important. I have included a short sound bite from the clip in this podcast and the full clip here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0NTQX92o68
