Government of Cyprus/Family court of Cyprus: Reunite Katerina and Marcus with their mother!

    1. Petition by

      Marla's Foundation

Katerina (age 5) and Marcus (18 months) Theocharides were unjustly taken to the country of Cyprus on January 10, 2011.  Both kids were born and raised in the USA.  Their mother has full custody of the children in the USA.  Cyprus courts will not recognize the USA court order.  Marla, their mother, has been going to court in Cyprus for over 2 years to get her children back.  During this process Marla has never had a final court hearing and never been allowed to present any evidence to the court.  This is a disgrace to two small, innocent children that need their mother.  The kids are currently living with their father's parents, Katerina and George Theocharides.  They are cared for by a Filipino nanny named Erlyn.  The kids have been brainwashed, taught to hate the USA, taught to hate their mother, neglected and alienated from their USA family.  Two innocent children are being used as revenge while the Cyprus courts continue to delay the case.  When Marla goes to Cyprus to visit her children with Cyprus court orders and a 50,000 Euro bank guarantee, the kids and their father go into hiding.  Marla has been denied access to her children, physically assaulted and put in jail when she goes to visit.  Her ex-husand is constantly filing false charges against her for attempted kidnapping.   Please sign this petition to make a change in Cyprus for all family court matters to handled adequately, quickly, and in a manner that is best for the children involved.  Two years is too long for two small babies to be without a mother.

      My story is sadly very similar to this story. My children lives with their father im Cyprus and I´m now staying in Sweden. When I come to visit the children he went on holiday just so that I couldn´t meet them. My children is sadly paying the highest price. All children need their mothers, both their parents and I miss my beautiful girls very much <3
