Geerte Frenken talks to Protective Mom Suzy


Since 2013 American Protective Mother and attorney Suzy has been refused custody and access to her 6 year-old son without justification after a corrupt Hague Convention Case filed by her Italian ex in U.S. Federal Court.

Since then Suzy has been forced to live in Italy where the Italian Court issued a temporary order denying any and all custody rights to Suzy without reason. Despite the odds of having to start a new life in Italy without family, friends, knowledge of the culture and language, Suzy has managed to provide a roof over her head and a place for her son to call home. She managed to successfully undergo court-ordered psychological evaluations deeming her to be fit and capable of the continued care of her son. Suzy continues to provide a home, works 3 jobs and remains in Italy to be close to her son, yet the father and the Italian Court refuse to modify the custody order.

Suzy is left with visitation only…a measly 6 nights a month. The father continues to be in contempt for not paying maintenance and for interference with visitation. However, the Italian Court refuses to rule on Suzy’s motions to modify custody, visitation and enforcement of the court orders.


To add insult to injury, the Italian father and authorities continue to proceed with an “Amanda Knox Style prosecution” and now criminally prosecute Suzy for alleged child abduction stemming from the 2013 Hague Convention Case, even though that was voluntarily dismissed along with all related claims in the U.S. by the Italian father contingent on Suzy agreeing to stay in Italy pending the divorce and the custody determination. As a result of these bogus charges Suzy now faces imprisonment of 1 to 3 years in prison and never-ending legal fees.


Because the Italian Court has given No Reasons over the past 3 years to validate its removal of all custody rights from Suzy, it can only be concluded that the Italian Court is corrupt, discriminatory and favors the Italian citizen father over the American mother. Most significantly and unfortunately, no regard has been given to the “best interest of the child.” The final outcome of this corruption and abuse of the Hague Convention and Italian custody case has caused a complete massacre of this Mother–Child relationship. It has violated the human rights of both Suzy and her son and has severed all ties with her son’s maternal culture, ethnicity, family, language and citizenship rights as an American.

This CCN Live TV Interview took place on July 16th, 2016


So what is a Protective Mother? A Protective Mother tries to protect her child or children from their abusive father by many means necessary, which is an uphill battle in today’s corrupt global Family Court system that thrives on paternal entitlement. Maternal Deprivation at the hands of abusive fathers has reached pandemic proportions! However, Protective Mothers worldwide are uniting to fight for the right to keep their children in what could be called a new Civil Rights movement.

Professional Fine Artist and College Professor Geerte Frenken is a Protective Mother fighting for her court-abducted daughter Jasmijn. She is the host of the CCN Live TV show HELL IS FOR CHILDREN about the global plight of Protective Mothers and their children that airs every Saturday at 3PM Eastern Standard Time (21:00 Central European Time).
