It later was filed by police as an assault and Mr Martens who alerted the emergency services said he was in an argument with his son in law and hit him with a baseball bat.Leaving court on Thursday, Ms Martens was said to be in floods of tears and in another late development, her legal team filed an appeal on the decision of the court.However, in this tragic twist, the Corbett family were only informed of the development on Friday morning.John Corbett, Jason’s brother, who was speaking on Limerick’s Live95fm, said the decision to appeal is very calculating,“It just shows you the pure callousness and coldness of the Martens family, especially Molly Martens in this desperate attempt to try and prevent my brother’s children to return to their true family because a senior family court judge decided that the long term future and care of Sarah and Jack would be the most beneficial with his true family in Ireland”.He said the latest actions were “cruel”, and that Ms Marten should not have taken it this far.John Corbett claimed that there is only one reason why Molly Martens has lodged the appeal.“The only reason, the whole family feels, that Molly Martens is desperately trying to get custody of my nephew and niece is because there is a possible pending criminal prosecution against her and other members of her family for the murder of my brother.“It’s a very very sinister agenda indeed.”The appeal goes against the comments of the Clerk of the superior court whose decision is below.The Corbett family have now been put on hold again from returning to Ireland to bury their brother and the family are said to be again traumatised on this latest twist.
