Black Market For Babies
Black Market For Babies

dpa/GNA – Investigators in Russia arrested three men and a woman accused of running a black market for babies, they said on Thursday.

Officials took nine babies into care in the eastern city of Krasnoyarsk who were probably going to be sold, they said.

A 27-year old woman from Kazakhstan gave birth to one of the babies after she was recruited by one of the suspects.

The woman was artificially inseminated in Cambodia, gave birth in Russia in April 2020 and left her baby with the men, according to officials, who said she returned to Kazakhstan and received 13,000 dollars for the sale of the boy.

No information was available about the mothers of the other babies.

The four suspects are being investigated for child trafficking.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
