Greek police make 4 arrests over illegal adoption

A couple aged 45 and 38, as well as two other people, were arrested in Athens on Tuesday on suspicion of arranging an illegal adoption.

They allegedly arranged for a pregnant 18-year-old Bulgarian woman to come to Greece to give birth and then register the baby using the 38-year-old woman’s identity.

However, employees at the registry noticed the discrepancy and informed police.

Officers arrested the couple at their home with the baby but are still searching for the child’s mother.
