Baby Trafficking Is Thriving in Greece

18. 12. 2006
Athens - An increasing number of people unable to adopt children through official channels are resorting to other methods in Greece, where private adoptions are unregulated and a traffic in babies is thriving, according to legal experts and the police.

Most of the babies for sale in Greece are brought here by impoverished women from Bulgaria and other Balkan countries, these experts say.

In the most recent case to come to light, a 16-year-old Roma girl from Romania is under arrest after complaining to the police that she had been cheated out of €14,000, or ,000, promised to her by a British woman who allegedly abducted the infant in Athens during negotiations over the price last week.
