Demand Her Right to Due Process & Equal Protection
UPDATE as per Geerte: “Jasmijn’s father Dave H. did NOT show up! He had TWO attorneys show up on his behalf and he was supposedly sick, but he failed to submit a doctor’s note.Judge Adams postponed the trial to November 15th at 8.30AM, issued a stay and ordered a “Writ of Body Attachment” with a $25.000 bond, meaning that if he doesn’t show up again the Sheriff will go get him, he will be held in contempt and tossed in jail for up to 1 year and a maximum fine! A HUGE THANK YOU for everyone who showed up.”
“Will Judge Adams stick to the law? Or will she continue to allow this self-admitted drug addict and identified child molester to hold Jasmijn hostage and commit Domestic Violence by Proxy through her Court by his blatant disregard of her orders 114 times and counting?”

Dear Judge Simmons,
I am protesting the discrimination by Judge Verna Adams against Geerte Frenken. Geerte is one of millions of women around the world being subjected to systemic gender bias which results in the taking of children from primary-nurturing mothers and giving them to unfit or abusive fathers.
Judge Adams has falsely found Geerte, a good, loving mother, to be unfit, while disregarding abundant evidence that the father is the one who is unfit and abusive. She granted sole custody of Jasmijn to the father and has kept Geerte away from her daughter in a continual denial of due process and equal protection over the course of a year and a half.
There is a hearing this Friday in which Geerte is asking for custody to be restored to her and the father to be found in contempt for 166 violations, 118 of which were denied Skype visitations. The father has not allowed any contact between Geerte and Jasmijn, which Judge Adams has permitted. It is our understanding that the father has not filed a response, so the default ruling should be in favor of Geerte anyway.
Women are fed up with this oppressive treatment in our courts and are banding together to stop it. We are requesting you appoint a new judge who will act and rule in a just and unbiased manner and restore custody immediately to Geerte.
“Jasmijn’s father broke multiple orders from 2010 to now: drug testing (dirty or skipped), skipped drug treatment, skipped NA meetings, skipped 118 visitations (I’m supposed to have 1 skype a week), and when he was allowed to travel to Canada last year he didn’t provide a proper itinerary or contact info as ordered. The grand total of violations is 166.
He has filed false police reports, he has withheld mail, he has had me physically threatened about child support in Holland and he has slandered me and my entire family to journalists, government officials, law enforcement and on Twitter. The school and Jasmijn’s therapist do not release records. He publishes the confidential child custody report which is a criminal offense. He published obscene photos of Jasmijn on the internet.
There is a grand-scale DA investigation into his libel and slander and threats and the case is going to court here in Holland. His attorney and the supervisor helped him. His attorney is facing disbarment and the supervisor will probably lose her license.”

WOMEN’S COALITION NOTE
Geerte has been very outspoken and spent a lot of time and energy on activism since her nightmare began. She has a website, blog, and is the host of the weekly online radio show “Hell Is for Children” where she interviews mothers who have had custody taken away and given to the father.
Geerte has been stuck in Holland, far from her daughter, for fear of being arrested and imprisoned on false charges of abduction if she returns to the U.S.
