Below is the link to C-Span’s video of Congressman Chris Smith’s subcommittee hearing on International Child Abduction on May 24.  

At the end of the hearing, Congressman Smith mentioned that the next hearing will be a “Japan specific hearing” that will look into Japan’s Hague Convention ascension and possible duplicity that may be involved in the small print by which Japan may try to circumvent living up to the spirit of the treaty.
