VietNamNet Bridge – Police of the northern city of Nam Dinh have uncovered networks that make false birth records so children can be adopted by foreigners.
Luu Quang Hung, Chief Inspector of the Department of Labour, War Invalids and Social Affairs of Nam Dinh city, verified that policemen are investigating charity centres in the two districts of Y Yen and Truc Ninh for making false birth records to allow foreigners to adopt babies.
Since 2006, the two centres have given over 300 kids to foreigners as adopted children.
The charity centre in Y Yen district was established in June 2006 and according to the centre, it is sponsored by three foreign organisations that have offices for adoption: Destimes, World Doctors’ Organisation and Italy’s Moniri (no document).
This centre has four houses in bad condition and some primitive equipment, which are below-standard for taking care of infants. By June 21, 2008, this centre had provided 100 babies for foreign adoption organisations. Eleven abandoned babies of 2-5 months are now at the centre, waiting for formalities to be fulfilled for adoption.
At the charity centre in Truc Ninh, five pregnant women are living there waiting to give birth.
