Judge Michael Kent rules!

Australian judge Michael Kent rules that a child’s rights trump Sharia!

Well done, judge!

If only more judges acknowledged that, even in circumstances as difficult as divorce, the best interests of a child trump everything else.

In this case, the mother wanted the ruling to be done in Saudi Arabia so that it would be made under Sharia – a set of laws which only considers the Islamic religious beliefs, not the rights of people, much less the best interests of the child.

Thank you, judge Michael Kent!

After all, a person’s a person, no matter how small.

I wish more judges were like judge Michael Kent.
