Roland and Susan Gianstefani who are members of an international religious sect known as Jesus Christians and Betty Waitherero whom they had been accused of abducting want the court to rule that their fundamental rights have been violated.
They claim they have been denied the freedom of worship, freedom of expression and freedom of association among others.
In an affidavit, Waitherero, a graduate of the United States International University-USIU says she and her seven-year-old son were never abducted and accuses her parents of trying to force her to hand over custody of her son.
She is asking the court to terminate a case filed at the Children’s Court by her parents.
Waitherero’s parents accuse her of removing her son from school after joining the Jesus Christians.
