As a mark of protest and to highlight the case of French diplomat Pascal Mazurier and Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade,Child Rights Initiative for Shared Parenting (CRISP) is organising a protest on Sunday.

“I have been fighting to see my 3 children who have been snatched away from me since June 2012. I pray to India and to my country France to realize the pain and trauma inflicted on me and on my mother,” said Pascal Mazurier.

Mazurier, a French diplomat serving as a deputy consul in the French Consulate General in Bangalore was suspended earlier. He was accused in July 2012 of raping his 3-year-old daughter by his wife Suja Jones-Mazurier, following a marital dispute. He was denied access to see his children by the French authorities. He was strip-searched, beaten by a mob and jailed for four months with hardened criminals during the course of his trial. “Today, when India is standing up to support the Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade in the USA, the ill-treatment I have faced until now is comparable to the humiliation she is facing,” he said.
