First 'stolen baby' doctor, 85, in the dock
26 June 2018 @ 00:58

A DOCTOR believed to have been involved in Spain's huge undercover 'stolen baby' scandal will appear in court tomorrow (Tuesday) – the first person in history summoned to the dock over the decades-long racket which started after Franco gained power through the Civil War.

An estimated 300,000 babies born between 1965 and 1990 were taken from their parents, who were normally told their infants had died and in many cases were even handed coffins, although many more may have been stolen and sold on in the 25 years prior to this.

The figures are quoted by the association ANADIR, founded by Juan Luis Moreno and Antonio Barroso seven years ago after they uncovered the racket when they discovered the people they grew up believing were their parents had actually bought them in Zaragoza from a priest.
