Greek police in Sparta are investigating two strange cases, possibly related to illegal adoptions. Two Roma families and a couple of four-year-old children appear to be involved.
Following a formal complaint submitted to local police, officers arrived in two separate camps near Sparta where they visited the two Roma families accused of having two children in their custody that were not biologically related to them – a four-year-old girl and a four-year-old boy.
The police officers brought both couples and the children to the local station in order to run the necessary DNA tests. The lab results revealed that the children were not related to their Roma “parents.”
The four adults were arrested on charges of child abduction, while the two couples still insist they are the children’s biological parents.
Meanwhile, both children are at the Sparta police station and are expected to be transferred to the organization “Smile of the Child.”
Police have contacted a prosecutor requesting permission to reveal the children’s photographs to the public in order to identify their biological parents.
