Australian author, TV personality and parents' rights advocate and humanitarian aid worker.
Pascarl came to public attention in 1992, when her children were covertly removed from Australia, illegally under Australian law, by their Malaysian father, a prince. One man was convicted, sentenced and then jailed as an accomplice. The Parliament of Australia characterised this removal as an "abduction."
She has written two memoirs, "Once I was a Princess" and "Since I Was a Princess" (2007). She lectures internationally and advises the European Union and the US State Department and represents Australia at world forums on child abduction issues.
Pascarl did not see her children again until 2006 when her twenty-year-old daughter Shahirah (now known simply as Shah) visited her in Melbourne. In August 2006, her son Iddin, now 23, returned to Australia to visit his mother after fourteen years of separation.
