Lately, the sit­u­a­tion with the chil­dren of Lat­vian na­tion­als in the UK has got bet­ter, stated Lat­vian Am­bas­sador to the UK, Baiba Braže.

In an in­ter­view with the Lat­vian TV chan­nel LNT, broad­cast 900 sekun­des, the Am­bas­sador ac­knowl­edged that the num­ber of chil­dren taken away by Bri­tish author­i­ties from fam­i­lies of UK-based Lat­vian na­tion­als has de­creased and added that cur­rently, lo­cal author­i­ties are more ac­tive in in­form­ing the Lat­vian Em­bassy of such cases.

«There have been few cases, when chil­dren have been taken away, and, to our opin­ion, jus­ti­fi­ably so, due to par­ents be­ing ad­dicted to al­co­hol,» com­mented Braže and added that the ap­prox­i­mate num­ber of chil­dren taken away from Lat­vian fam­i­lies in the UK in 2016 is four.

The Am­bas­sador stressed that in or­der to solve such ar­gu­ments with Bri­tish author­i­ties, the first and main ad­vice is to co­op­er­ate and show one’s in­ter­est and care for the child.
