VANCOUVER, BC, May 31 ( – Four-year-old Anna Rath was taken from her parents over four weeks ago and is being held by BC social workers on the basis of an unfounded accusation of sexual abuse against her father Jurgan Rath. Rath a Christian evangelical mission worker from Paris, who was asked to move with his family to BC to help provincial Christian ministries, was accused of abuse, apparently by a disgruntled acquaintance who threatened Rath with revenge.

Social workers arrived at the Rath home with police and apprehended Anna, taking her to a hospital where she was subjected to an invasive “rape exam.” The doctor informed the social worker that there was “no evidence of sexual assault,” but the provincial bureaucrat refused to return the child to her parents. Instead, she placed Anna in a foster home to await another, more invasive rape exam. The parents’ request that their child be placed with a familiar family which spoke her native language (French) was ignored.
