STATEMENT BY SECRETARY CLINTON

 

I was pleased to hear that the Appellate Court in Rio de Janeiro has upheld the lower court’s decision that Sean Goldman, a young American boy wrongfully retained in Brazil for more than five years, should be reunited with his father David in New Jersey.  We appreciate the assistance and cooperation of the Government of Brazil in upholding its obligations under the Hague Convention on International Child Abduction.  And it is my hope that this long legal process is now complete and that the Goldman family will be reunited quickly.  They will be in my thoughts and prayers today and throughout this holiday season.
