An eight-year-old girl who was kidnapped in eastern France on Tuesday has been found with her mother in Switzerland.
Her mother, Lola Montemaggi, was taken into Swiss police custody. Officials say she ordered the abduction of the girl, of whom she no longer had custody, from her grandmother's home. No violence was used.
Custody of the girl was given to her maternal grandmother last January after her mother reportedly told a family judge she wanted to "live on the margins of society". Prosecutors said she had ly expressed the desire to sell up and live in a motor home "under the radar". One of the suspected kidnappers had waited in the car, while two had approached the grandmother pretending to be child protection officers, officials said. Three of the men and the mother crossed the French-Swiss border on foot along with the. On the other side, another man picked up the mother and daughter drove them in a car to a hotel in Estavayer-le-Lac, near the border with France.
Lola Montemaggi did not resist arrest when Swiss investigators arrived at the factory in two vans, witnesses told an AFP news agency photographer. The mother is expected to soon be the subject of a European arrest warrant for her extradition to France. The girl is being cared for by a psychologist and a social worker before being reunited with her grandmother. Five men have been charged with abducting a minor, including the three who allegedly carried out the kidnapping, and four are in custody.
The kidnappers had not ly been known to police, he said. For them, he said, "children in care are unfairly taken from their parents". Three of the arrested are described as known survivalists - a type of anti-state individual living on the fringe and often linked to the far right. Another believed he had saved the child's life, although he admitted he might have been manipulated by the girl's mother. The suspects allege they were asked over the internet to carry out the plot.
