Her husband filed a lawsuit against her because she wanted revenge and the court decided to return the child, Kovansi said. “First, the local court gives the child to me – then my wife appeals. An unprincipled decision from the Supreme Court, which did not follow the logic and reasoning of the decision to separate a child from its mother and return the child to Austria without any fault on the part of the mother. The system does not want or demand that children of this age be separated from their mothers. I am a mother, I have been fighting for my children for 4 years. At the moment my children are afraid of being held by their fathers. Or do not want to be separated from each other. Child psychology is in a terrible state at the moment, and unfortunately, it is their parents who keep them alive. Not just revenge on me. For the feeling of war. According to him, I had to endure this torture, I had to endure all their cruelty, “he said.
