-> Adoptie Vietnam niet in orde

Hanoi, 25 april. Vietnam houdt onvoldoende toezicht op de adoptie van Vietnamese kinderen, zegt de Amerikaanse ambassade in Hanoi.

In een rapport meldt zij voorvallen waarin adopties duidelijk strijdig zijn met de Vietnamese wet. Het onderzoek is gebaseerd op honderden adopties door Amerikanen sinds 2006.

Weeshuizen zouden moeders onder druk hebben gezet om hun baby’s af te staan in ruil voor ongeveer 285 euro, een jaarsalaris voor velen in Vietnam. In een geval heeft een ziekenhuis een baby overgedragen aan een adoptiebureau omdat de moeder de – vervalste – rekening niet zou kunnen betalen. Ook wordt beschreven hoe een grootmoeder een kind liet adopteren zonder toestemming van de moeder.

Het departement voor Internationale Adopties in Vietnam noemt de beschuldigingen „ongefundeerd”. Het erkent dat omkoping van weeshuisdirecteuren voorkomt, maar er zouden geen problemen zijn met kidnapping of het verkopen van baby’s.

Vorig jaar verviervoudigde het aantal geadopteerde Vietnamese kinderen. De meesten worden aangenomen door Amerikanen, 828 in het afgelopen jaar.

HANOI, Vietnam - Vietnam has failed to police its adoption system, allowing corruption, fraud and baby-selling to flourish, the U.S. Embassy says in a new report obtained by Ben Stocking, The Associated Press.

-> Vietnamese 'Orphans' - For Export Only
 
The US have investigated the Vietnamese adoption system. The outcome is devastating, but to me no surprise. I recognised much of the Romanian 'orphans', created 'For Export Only'.

Since Vietnam and the US sigened a Memorandum of Understanding in 2005 to re-open adoptions (suspended since 2002 because of corruption), the number of adoptable 'oprhans had exploded. Now why was that ?

-> Vietnam adoptions banned for Americans

Claims that babies were being unlawfully removed from their natural mothers and sold to agencies in Vietnam have caused a ban on all Vietnamese adoptions to the US from July.

Leaked by The Associated Press last Thursday, the US Embassy document cited cases of fraud, corruption and baby-selling in the Vietnamese adoption system. Days later, the Vietnamese authorities announced that it would be stopping all adoptions to the US from July onwards. The United States has been a major adoptive country, having relocated around 1,200 Vietnamese children in the past 18 months.

Vietnamese doctors 'sold' babies for overseas adoptions

Sixteen Vietnamese doctors, nurses and officials sold 266 babies for overseas adoptions, a court heard on Tuesday.

The defendants from a number of clinics and social welfare centres in the northern province of Nam Dinh allegedly solicited the infants from unmarried mothers and impoverished families.

To make the children eligible for adoption, and the process legal, they ring forged documents so it appeared the children had been abandoned at village clinics, it was claimed.

The accused – the directors of two social welfare centres, doctors, nurses and district officials – face jail terms of between five and ten years if convicted of "abuse of power and authority".

The babies were allegedly sent for foreign adoption by the ring between 2005 and July 2008, when the racket was busted just three months after damming report into the trade.

Each member of the group allegedly illegally earned between £170 and £340 for their part in the scheme. Most of the babies ended up in France, Italy and the US, according to court officials.

Couples in the US had adopted the most Vietnamese children before a bilateral agreement expired a year ago.

In 2007, 828 Vietnamese infants were adopted by parents in the US, including the fourth child of movie stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, though there is no suggestion of impropriety.

That tally of adoptions would have been surpassed last year had the agreement not lapsed.

Each year around ten Vietnamese babies had been adopted by couples from Britain.

The US-Vietnamese adoption agreement expired after an exhaustive investigation uncovered widespread irregularities. The US embassy in Hanoi revealed Vietnamese authorities' failure to police the system.

Rampant abuses included flourishing sales of babies, and fraud and corruption perpetrated by care officials and orphanage directors.

Hospitals sold babies whose mothers could not afford the medical bills for delivery, brokers scoured villages for infants, and in one case a grandmother sent a baby girl for her parents' knowledge.
