Tas adoptions cleared

Aug 26, 2008

An audit of Tasmania's adoption records has revealed no children have been adopted from the Indian agency at the centre of international investigations into child stealing.

There have been 14 adoptions from India by Tasmanian parents in the past 20 years.

However, none orginated from Malaysian Social Service.

It is alleged the group snatched children from the streets and then adopted them out under fake indentities.

A spokeswoman from the Department of Health and Human Services says all Tasmanian adoptions from India were legally endorsed by the courts.
