Baby found with Greek Roma couple who aren’t real parents

A Roma couple, aged 58 and 59, from Katerini in northern Greece were remanded in custody on Monday after being found in possession of a 10-month old baby that did not belong to them.

The couple said they were given the child by the 41-year-old Roma woman who has been in pretrial custody since October after authorities discovered she was not the biological mother of a 4-year-old blond girl that was living with her, who gained international prominence under the nickname “Maria” (photo).

The couple said they had not been able to have children of their own and the baby was given to them in August by the 41-year-old, who has denied doing so.
