Lights For Alice Caetano Flier


Alice Caetano

Alice Caetano

Alice was abducted by her non-custodial mother, Luciana Pires Caetano.  In October of 2003, Luciana went to Brazil with Alice to wait for immigration documents as she had previously been living in Canada without legal status.  Two weeks after arriving in Brazil, Luciana told Alice’s father, her husband, Cesar Pimenta Caetano, that she would not be returning to Canada.  Cesar immediately filed a complaint of international kidnapping in accordance with the Hague Convention, at the Central Authority of Canada, who then, in turn, immediately sent the complaint to the Central Authority of Brazil.  The complaint was pushed aside when Luciana decided to return to Canada in December of 2005.  Cesar and Luciana lived together and were raising their daughter together, when in October of 2009, Luciana again took Alice to Brazil.  This time however, she immediately went into hiding with the little girl.

Once again, in February of 2010, Cesar filed a complaint of international kidnapping in accordance with the Hague Convention.

After hiring a private investigator to locate Luciana and Alice, Cesar was able to spend a very short amount of time with Alice in April of 2012.  Luciana and Alice are living in Goias, Brazil.  Unfortunately, the process of bringing his daughter home became exponentially more complicated.  When Luciana was in Canada, she had gone to a Women’s Shelter, Interim Place, in Toronto, and claimed to be the victim of domestic abuse.  These allegations have never been proven and the fabrication of these claims is quick to unravel.  However, because of these allegations, Brazilian authorities have used them as an excuse to keep Alice in Brazil with Luciana.  Brazil has a history of non-compliance with the Hague Convention.

Alice’s father continues to fight to have his daughter brought home to him.
