China – Schuurmans-case

An international recovery of two children from China to The Netherlands.

I went through a very hard time when my children were abducted. In my specific case it was very hard and not completely without risk to undertake action. I didn’t know what to expect. I knew that any mistake made in the beginning would drastically reduce our chances of getting the children back. Thanks to Mr. Hoogkamer and his colleagues everything went well and it was all over very quickly. The people at the IECC have a very professional way of working and a lot of experience. Mr. Hoogkamer wanted to help me and was prepared to do so. I also felt his compassion and involvement, which created a strong relationship of trust.

The planning and preparation was done very carefully, nothing was left to chance and every possible scenario was considered. I knew that even in the worst possible scenario, they would continue. This is exactly what I heard from other clients as well. My own recovery luckily went very well. Moreover, everything was solved merely by talking and negotiating, Mr. Hoogkamer acted as a mediator. I found this very positive and professional, I was impressed by this. Because of the emotional state I was in, I would not have been able to perform this kind of negotiating myself. The IECC is currently still helping me to prevent a possible second abduction from taking place. I am very much willing to act as a reference for the IECC, for those who are in a similar situation, those who are living through a child abduction at this very moment.

We strongly discourage taking matters into your own hands. 
The measures could be illegal and may delay your child’s return. 
Attempts to re-abduct your child(ren) violently from any country may:

  • Endanger you, your child(ren) and others;
  • Prejudice any future judicial efforts you might wish to make in the abducted-to-state;
  • Even result in the arrest and imprisonment for many years!, of you, and that of your accomplices.

Finally, there is no guarantee that the chain of violent abductions would end with the one committed by you. 
A parent who has violently re-abducted a child may have to go to extraordinary lengths to conceal his or her whereabouts, living in permanent fear that the child may be violently re-abducted yet again.
If you are contemplating such desperate measures, we advise you to consider the emotional trauma inflicted on a child who is a victim of a violent abduction and a violent re-abduction.
We discourage violent re-abductions not only because it is illegal, but also because of possible psychological harm to the child.

We don’t use illegal methods; we intervene in another way.
Our method of work is strategically un-orthodox, but obviously legal and safe with the assistance of our strong global network.
Your case, needs to be continuously coached, monitored and pushed forward by our organization.
