Help rescue my abducted daughter Rhian Toolan

Donation protected
Hi, my name is Tom Toolan and I am Rhian Toolan's biological father.

Summary
Rhian was abducted in 2018 and taken to Poland illegally. Rhian's abduction is a Criminal Offence under the 1984 UK Child Abduction Act. There is currently an International Arrest Warrant outstanding for Rhian's abductor/abuser Edyta Sonta a Polish National who lived in the UK for 23 years.

Why I need your help and Support
I am raising £5,000 so that I can continue to go to Poland as directed by the Polish Courts to assist with the rescue attempts of Rhian. As Rhian's legal guardian, I have to be present at each rescue attempt made by the Polish authorities.

The investigating Police Force is Suffolk Police, Crime Ref: 37/50572/18.


Rhian is listed on the InterPol website as missing: https://www.interpol.int/en/How-we-work/Notices/View-Yellow-Notices


Rhiann is also listed on the Polish missing person's website ITAKA: https://zaginieni.pl/profile/?o=22101


The Polish Government has publicly stated that they will not return British Children unlawfully abducted to and illegally retained in Poland irrespective of if that child abduction is a Criminal abduction or a Civil Abudciotn.

The UK Government is more than aware of Rhian's abduction, it has been raised by my MP Priti Patel in the House of Commons:


Rhian's abduction to Poland falls under two pieces of law:

  • Criminal: UK Child Abduction Act 1984
  • Civil: Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction ie Hague Convention

In terms of legal proceedings under the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction ie Hague Convention:

In summary, 10 courts, and 18 judges (all women) from two countries (UK & Poland) who are independent geographically and judicially have ordered Rhian's return to the UK including the UK High and Polish Supreme Courts, they have said that it is in Rhian's best interests.

There have been 7 attempts to rescue Rhian from her abductor/abuser under the Hague Convention, each attempt has failed because of the Polish Authorities and their unwillingness to go against the Polish Government Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro.

The last attempt to rescue Rhian took place on July 5th 2023, and as with all the other attempts, it failed.

Next Steps - Legal Proceedings
I have two international legal cases, one with the European Court of Human Rights and one with the United Nations Human Rights Committee. There are also legal proceedings being taken against Poland by the European Justice Commission:


Parental Alienation using Child Abduction is Child Abuse. I am fighting for the right to be a parent (Dad) I am fighting for every parent who is alienated from their child.

I need your help and support so I can continue to undertake further rescue attempts. Thank you for reading my storey. Please feel free to contact me and ask any questions I will do my best to respond.

Very best wishes

Tom
