Bulgaria: EUobserver Looks into Sales of Bulgarian Babies in Greece

Officials estimate that dozens of Bulgarian women – the vast majority of them from the Roma minority - are known to have sold their babies to couples in Greece desperate for a child of their own, reads an article posted on EUobserver website on Tuesday.

“Mothers can earn up to €5,000, but sometimes less than €1,000, according to court documents seen by the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network, BIRN. Middlemen take the biggest cut of what the adopters actually pay,” the authors Juliana Koleva and Kostas Kallergis write.
