Two Years Later, Florida Court Has Yet to Rule to Evict People from Sofia's Home | @FuatKircaali @DianeRMacedo

Mon, 08 May 2017 03:30:00 EDT

Six years have passed since the global news coverage of Sofia's abduction to Syria and she has now been waiting for more than two years for the Broward County Court's decision in Florida to evict the occupants of her home, so she can return to the U.S. and "finally" resume her normal life at the age of eight. In 2011, her mother's Florida Attorney Susan R. Brown convinced Honorable Judge Arthur Birken to give temporary custody of Sofia to her mother; months later Sofia ended up in Syria with her mom and stayed there for several years until the civil war broke. A year after the Broward County Court's "worst custody ruling" in Florida, and after world-wide media outrage, Honorable Judge Arthur Birken contacted me and extended the sole custody of my daughter to me. This didn't help get Sofia out of Syria for three more years. In the mean time, since June 2015, Sofia's Florida home has been occupied by people who converted the house into a bed and breakfast rental and destroyed the home beyond recognition. During the last hearing on April 10, 2017, General Magistrate Rita Ugarte said "she is not even sure if she can legally let these people continue to live in the house" but once again the trial has been postponed to June 15, 2017.
