Klaus (fictional name) was living in London and was married to a Japanese woman. At the end of 2015 his (then) wife left with their daughter for a visit to her family in Japan. When she came back, she was alone. She packed her stuff and left again, for good. After long legal proceedings, in December 2016 a court sentence established his right to a regular visit schedule with the daughter, but his (now) ex-wife is not complying with it. Since then, he was only allowed sporadic Skype contacts and few short visits.
