‘The Moscow Times’ reports that riot police had to help a mother regain custody of her 8-year-old daughter in a case that riveted Lithuania for three years. Protesters and citizens of the town Garliava oppose the order because they allege that the mother is part of a pedophile ring. The case started in 2009 when the girl’s father claimed his daughter was being abused by a pedophile ring. He failed to get a court order protecting his daughter. He allegedly killed a judge and the mother’s sister – both of whom he accused of being part of the pedophile ring. He was later found dead as well.
