GUATEMALA: TIGHTER ADOPTION CONTROLS URGED -- A United Nations envoy called on Guatemala to enforce stricter controls on international adoptions and take new steps to protect children to stem the country's problems with baby-selling and youth prostitution. Ofelia Calcetas-Santos, who is in Guatemala at the invitation of the Government for a two-week visit to investigate the country's growing adoption trade, is to make formal recommendations by next April.
