The First Kidnapping
Before I talk about the international kidnapping in the news, did you know I was kidnapped once before? By my mother! There are hundreds of pages of proof but to keep it simple here are a few statements from the Tennessee judge. These are from early 2005 and some of the reasons that custody was transferred to my dad.
That was the only real kidnapping and it was done by my mother.
Summer of 2006
My parents were married in Kentucky. I was born and raised in Tennessee until they divorced in 2002 also in Tennessee. Besides visits to family or vacations, I only lived in Tennessee.
Because of the kidnapping by my mother and many other violations of the court order the Tennessee court gave full custody to my dad and authorized me to live overseas with him.
This is from August 2005 and my dad had full custody from then until I was 18 years old.
For summer of 2006 my dad traveled with me to the US to bring me to my mother for summer visitation. She moved to Pennsylvania. We flew to Boston where we separated. He flew on to Seattle where he stayed for one week with his job at Microsoft and then returned to Europe. I flew with an airline escort to my mother in Pennsylvania.
Getting ready to go back to my dad, my mother filed an emergency filing to change custody back to her in Pennsylvania. She made crazy claims like this:
Cyprus is a European Union country and listed as one of the safest places in the world. Lebanon is separated from Cyprus by the Mediterranean ocean and makes no sense whatsoever. But she tossed it in there because there was some fighting going on in Lebanon at the time. Bahrain is 1,200 miles from Cyprus. No idea what that was supposed to mean.
The very same Pennsylvania judge ordered her to return me to my dad:
I was forcibly transferred by two state police officers under court order to my dad’s parents who took me to the airport and I flew with an airline escort back to Cyprus. Here is my passport stamp. Larnaka is the main international airport of Cyprus and its a European format date but says September 2, 2006:
The “Second Kidnapping”
Just two months later the very same judge who forcibly removed me from my mother using two state police officers when she did not want to comply with the custody order the judge declared I had been kidnapped.
Monday November 6, 2006 I was living and going to school in Cyprus.
We were never informed of this and my mom later took it to the FBI:
The FBI is really slack about facts. This is a small thing, but they list my dad as a Titusville resident. My dad has never lived or even spent a night in Titusville or even Venango County. My mother was the one in Titusville.
The FBI didn’t bother to fact check anything & happily jumped on the idea of pushing the idea of an internationally kidnapped child so they could hit headlines in the media & make themselves look good.
This was all done in a secret closed grand jury. No notification was ever given to my dad or his lawyers. My dad only found out when he was arrested in Bulgaria on a business trip. My dad spent several months in prison before Bulgaria denied his extradition to the US and let him go. You can read his story here – Bulgarian Prison and more at Trapped in Bulgaria.
The FBI “Kidnapping”
The FBI loves to slander and try people in the public eye. First they couldn’t even get my dad’s city or country right and mixed it up with my mother’s. Here is the FBI indictment which says that my father removed me from the United States in November 2006:
November 6, 2006 again. The day I was in school in Cyprus. So how was I kidnapped? The judge forcibly ordered me to be removed from my mother August 31, 2006. Did the judge kidnap me? I wasn’t even in the US then! But it gets better. This is from FBI testimony in the same document:
This document is from May 2009. The FBI says my dad hasn’t been in the US since June 17, 2006 and I haven’t been in the US since Sept 1, 2006, but yet somehow my dad kidnapped me on November 6, 2006??? For Pennsylvania its is even longer. My dad last visited Pennsylvania in early 2005 and has not lived in Pennsylvania since 1995 and did not live in Titusville.
My Interpol file says my mother has not seen me since Sept 1, 2006. This is the date the judge ordered police officers to remove me from her and return me to my dad! Interesting how they left that part out of the Interpol file.
The FBI only cares about looking good. They over hyped this way out of proportion to make international news headlines. The FBI agents behind this probably did this so they could look good & get promoted.
Later my dad was the headline:
International coverage in the Associated Press. This one was in Taiwan in Asia but it appeared in papers all over the world. Taiwan isn’t even connected to any of this, but this is how big up they played it to try my dad in the public eye.
The FBI wants it to look really bad and dangerous. Here is how it was covered in Bulgaria where my dad was detained by Interpol. Talk about hype! Look at this photo!
I was never in Bulgaria then. But yeah, just more of those facts that they don’t care about.
The FBI put out an Interpol Red Notice, the same type of notice used for terrorists.
And it continues to this day. Pennsylvania earlier this year dismissed the case against my father (but the FBI has not!).
BUT! They still kept an arrest warrant because they say my dad is a fugitive since he fled the jurisdiction. The FBI said my dad has not been in the US since June 17, 2006. But my dad is still in trouble for fleeing on November 6, 2006????
Does Pennsylvania have a different calendar system than the rest of the world?
Now it all makes sense! The FBI just has to use “alternative calendars”!
