“‘Violent, aggressive’. Why did a mother trust them?”
“As details emerge about CARI’s methods, and that of their owner Adam Whittington, Ms Faulkner, Brown, 60 Minutes producer Stephen Rice, sound man David Ballment and cameraman Ben Williamson face kidnapping-related charges. Four CARI members were also detained.”
– “The first mistake was hiring CARI,” Mr Chapman told the ABC.“
– ““CARI has been arrested in three countries, jailed in two countries, and along with CARI being jailed, in three instances the parents have been jailed as well,” …”
– ““They’re known for violent and aggressive recoveries and that’s just not my opinion, that’s factual, been to jail, been arrested, been convicted, and here again.”
– ““They’ve been a bit arrogant in their behaviour over in Lebanon. They have. And I don’t think anyone would disagree with me. What were they thinking?”
In 2014, Whittington – a former Met detective in the UK – was jailed in Singapore when a CARI plan to snatch a British woman’s child back from a spouse she was divorcing backfired.
Whittington and the child’s mother scuffled with the grandparents, with court papers stating Whittington placed his left arm around the 66-year-old grandfather’s neck, and also made contact with the neck of the grandmother.
He was sentenced to 16 weeks’ jail for entering the country illegally, criminal assault and voluntarily causing hurt.
Also stated in the Australian Broadcast Report: “The four members of the so-called recovery team… (CARI) …were also brought up for brief questioning. The judge will want to know which of them pushed the children’s grandmother to the ground during the operation. ”
CARI, and Adam Whittington use violent behavior as has been shown in a number of published articles on this blog. Mr. Whittington might state publicly that this is witch hunt, but there is too much evidence to the contrary. Be smart when trusting your children to a man like Adam Whittington or his company CARI / PRC. The last thing you need is to wind up incarcerated with your children suffering the psychological trauma of a failed, violent recovery. Do your research, be smart.
