Parents Of Abandoned Kids Face Charges

STRASBOURG, France (UPI) — The divorced parents of two French children allegedly left at an airport in Germany for five days will face charges of abandonment, authorities said.

The children, ages 6 and 9, were supposed to fly with their grandmother to Algeria from Frankfurt airport but were not allowed on the plane by airport authorities because they were not carrying written permission from their mother to fly, TheLocal.fr reported Thursday.

The grandmother returned home to Strasbourg leaving the children at the airport.

German social services, who took the children into care, contacted the parents to come and get the children, but neither parent wanted them, authorities said.

The father claimed he had a car problem while the mother allegedly said she did not have the time, TheLocal.fr reported.

French authorities finally were able to return the children to France and the parents were brought before magistrates in a French courtroom this week, charged with abandonment.

They face the possibility of losing custody of the children, authorities said.
