On 6 February, Lithuanian Minister of Foreign Affairs Linas Linkevičius and Dag Malmer Halvorsen, Ambassador of Norway to Lithuania, discussed the protection of the rights of Lithuanian citizens in Norway and possible cooperation of the two countries on children's rights protection.
It is a public secret what Krzysztof Rutkowski, a Polish private investigator, does for a living. He is helping people who have had their parental rights restricted by Norway's child welfare services to get their children back. Rutkowski tells DELFI that he has worked with families from Lithuania, too.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Norway has promised Lithuanian Ambassador in Oslo Izolda Bričkovskienė to put every effort to officially confirm that a seven-year-old Lithuanian boy who was returned from Sweden is indeed in Norway. The boy's mother attempted to take her son out of Norway, where the two lived. Swedish diplomats have said that Lithuania was not informed about the return of the child because his place of residence has not been declared in Lithuania.
