In a petition for return of a child under the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction (Convention), the District Court's order extending comity to a Greek court's denial of Respondent's petition pursuant to the Convention is reversed where the Greek court misapplied the provisions of the Convention, relied on unreasonable factual findings, and contradicted the principles and objectives of the Convention.
