'Stolen baby' case tried in Europe for the first time
15 August 2013 @ 18:00

THE first-ever case of a 'stolen baby' in Spain has reached the European Court of Human n Rights (ECHR) in Strasbourg amid claims by the family that a 'cover-up' operation has been deliberately staged to prevent them from finding out the truth.

Solicitor for the national pressure group SOS Niños Robados ('SOS Stolen Children') Enrique Vila has presented the case to Europe after the highest court in Spain, the Tribunal Constitucional, threw it out on a 'technicality' – namely,that the legal time limit for taking action had passed.

The case relates to a baby girl born in Málaga Civil Hospital on October 12, 1964, and whose family were told she had been stillborn.

Her sister says none of the family ever saw the body of the baby and no documentation has ever been found relating to her death or the circumstances involved.
