It’s our understanding that Sabine McNeill’s passport was taken from her, and has been held by police since her initial arrest last summer. So you can imagine our surprise and consternation when we began receiving emails and texts from concerned readers, reporting that Sabine is now claiming to have accompanied Belinda McKenzie on a junket to Brussels earlier this week.
According to Sabine’s Change.org petition site, “We spent Tuesday in Brussels, on the occasion of the Petitions Committee meeting with ‘child snatching’ on the agenda again”.
As usual, Sabine attempts to hijack the legitimate discourse of the EU Petitions Committee to her own ends, just as she and Belinda did in November 2015 when they tried to insinuate that their Forced Adoptions event was somehow linked to a delegation of MEPs who were visiting the UK at that time.
But more pertinent right now is the concern that Sabine seems to be able to travel abroad despite the lack of her UK passport, while her trial is ongoing.
We await word from the authorities on this. More to follow.
