Nyhet

In november last year the Norwegian Child Protection Service (CPS) removed the children of a Norwegian-Romanian couple from their home in Sogn og Fjordane in western Norway.

Shortly after claims arose from supporters of the pentacostal couple, that the CPS' reason for removing the children was fear of religious indoctrination. The claim is repeted in a petition that has gathered more than 50.000 signatures from around the world. The campaign was initiated by a Romanian pastor of a Pentecostal church in Chicago in the US.

Before Christmas Norwegian police charged the couple for domestic violence. In an interview with the Romanian TV channel Antena 3 the couple admitted that there have been incidents of corporal punishment.
