This crazy nag tried to kidnap a child and take him to hell-China. She boarded a plane and thank goodness it wasn’t Air China or she would have gotten away with it.

LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. (WUSA9) — The U.S. Attorney’s Office says the hearing for a mother accused of trying to fly a child to China without permission from the father has been postponed.
Last week, we told you that a custody battle between Loudoun County parents forced a Beijing-bound flight to return to DullesInternational Airport. The flight carrying Wenjing ‘Linda’ Liu of Fairfax and her son had flown over Canada before the pilot announced the plane was headed back. Had the plane not turned around, the incident could have become a major international custody battle. The U.S. only has custody treaties with 90 countries, and China is not one of them.
Liu and her son were met by authorities when the plane landed, according to an affidavit. The child was returned to his father, William Ruifrok III, and Liu was taken into custody, officials said.
The father had notified the FBI that Liu was attempting to take their son to China without his permission. Liu is not allowed to take the child out of the country without the father’s permission, according to a custody agreement.
Liu had emailed the child’s father to say that her grandmother was dying and that “we gotta fly back asap,” according to an affidavit. The father told Liu that their son couldn’t go, but Liu said she already booked a flight and they were leaving immediately, according to an affidavit.
Liu faces attempted international parental kidnapping, according to an affidavit.
Ruifrok, who is American, separated from his wife Liu last year. The parents had joint custody of the child, but according to the custody agreement, neither parent was allowed to take the child outside the U.S. without the other’s consent.
Liu sent her estranged husband an email saying her grandfather was dying and she was taking their son to China, investigators told NBC News. When Liu ignored Ruifrok’s objections, he notified FBI about the potential kidnapping.
Passengers said the pilot initially told them they had to return due to mechanical issues, CBS News reported.
“After they left, the pilot came back on and said that he deliberately misled us, he thought that, in his judgment that it was the best thing to do, given the circumstances of potential abduction that that’s the reason we had diverted,” passenger Lane Bailey told the station.
Flight 897 continued on to its destination Thursday evening.
