First the Swedish government took their son away. Now an appeals court has terminated their parental rights -- all because they homeschooled their son.I guess the Nordic countries do not have any parental rights or due process.
Dominic Johannson has been in state custody since 2009.
In June, he and his family experienced a glimmer of hope when a district court ruled the Johannsons could retain their parental rights. Now an appeals court has reversed that decision.
CBN News Repoter Dale Hurd has been following this story from the beginning. He recently spoke with the family's former attorney about it.
"The laws concerning the taking of children in their care are like a rubber band," Ruby Harrold-Claesson, with the Nordic Committee on Human Rights, told CBN News. "You can stretch it in any direction and the social workers never do wrong. They always have the backing of the administrative courts."

Claesson said this is a problem in all the Nordic countries. She's filing reports on human rights violations against all "child protection systems" there.
