Two more family abduction victims

Mira and Yaanis Mellersh were abducted by their mother from Germany in 2010; they were supposed to be living in England with their father. A few days ago they were found dead in Turkey, killed by their mother who then committed suicide. I have always hated the fact the British press uses the phrase “tug of love” for parental kidnapping, but the fact that many news outlets are continuing to use the phrase when the two children involved were murdered is frankly quite stunning. They have been added to the victims page. I don’t have the energy to cry over these anymore. this!

    Yaanis and Mira wher not supposed to live in England with their father who lives in Lueneburg, Germany.
    Before fleeing to Turkey (as we know now) Elke wanted to divorce because of violence and sexual abuse of the children. This fact is reported by the children at german family court! As the authorities and institutions work to slowly she had to act fast to protect her children, who told horrible things about their father and the times in England.
    We have witnessed the blue faces when they had to go with their dad who gave such a warm and intensive love to them as he claims now. Maybe a little bit too warm and intensive? We donĀ“t know.
    But for sure Elke was not suffering from a mental desease.

    Are you seriously insinuating that she murdered her children to protect them? That doesn’t meet the definition of the word to me at all.

    I am the father of childen abducted by their disturbed mother, also known to suffer paranoid delusions, as did Elke Mellersh. I have read posts put up by Elke’s “supporters” who seem to be excusing themselves from responsibility for helping and enabling Elke to abduct her children rather than getting her the help she needed.
    It is shameful. Now that Elke has murdered her children, it’s time for her “supporters” to accept their role in the killing of innocents, not cynically justifying it as “protecting” them.
    My own children are still alive, but I don’t sleep at night knowing they are in danger and the greatest risk to them comes from the people around their mother who feed her delusions instead of questioning them and saving the children from her.
