[2004] EWHC 2955 (Admin)

The removal from lawful control for the purposes of the Child Abduction Act 1984 s.2(1)(a) was completed by the time the defendants encountered the 15-year-old victim. Their subsequent knowledge of the victim's age and failure to return her to her foster parents did not criminalise their previous behaviour.

DC (Rose LJ, Pitchford J)
