The Nantes, France father says he’ll stay there until a legal order, denying him the right to see his son, is reversed.
Serge Charnay mounted the yellow crane on Friday amid morning fog to highlight his case, unfurling a large banner that read: “Benoit, two years without a dad.”
Charnay has struggled to win back the right to see his son, born in 2006, after losing custody and all visiting rights when he was accused of kidnapping the boy.
“I will stay here until I gain something significant,” Charnay said in a message. He has been sending text messages from his mobile phone.
He is seeking a reversal of the judicial order that he says “has destroyed my family and our lives.”
