Irish couples return home from Mexico after child adoption nightmare
Scam was running for 30 years according to reports
The Irish couples innocently caught up in an adoption scandal in Mexico have returned home – heartbroken, shaken and childless.
The Sunday Independent reports that the 11 couples are now back in Ireland after police smashed the child trafficking operation in Guadalajara.
Legal representatives of the prospective parents have assured the Independent that their clients traveled with paperwork from the Irish authorities allowing them to legally adopt in Mexico.
Their lawyers believe that the Irish couples, in their 30s and 40s, are just the latest victims of a child trafficking operation that has been ongoing for up to 30 years.
The prospective Irish parents paid over $50,000 in fees and expenses according to their lawyers who also stated that the Mexican authorities have cleared them of all wrongdoing.
Seven Mexican babies were taken from the Irish by police last week after they smashed the operation and took 10 children in total into care. Four of them were subsequently found to have been sexually abused while they were in the care of the Mexican gang.
Mexican lawyer Carlos Montoya, who is acting on behalf of the Irish couples, insists they did everything by the book and paid thousands of dollars in fees.
“These couples were desperate to have children. All they wanted was the affection that goes with having a family of their own, so they handed over the money,” he told one local newspaper.
“They had all the necessary papers required from the Irish authorities to adopt a baby from another country.
“They alerted the adoption authorities to their intention to adopt in Mexico.”
According to the Independent report, the Irish couples trawled the internet for a legal adviser and employed a US firm, which in turn referred them to a lawyer named Carlos Lopez in Guadalajara.
Lopez has told the Mexican investigators that he has arranged adoptions for about 60 Irish couples over the last seven years with couples paying upwards of $30,000 (€23,000). He also claims he was duped by the gang.
The Independent report states that babies were pledged before they were born and prospective parents were sometimes asked to pay for the pregnant mother’s medical expenses.
When the babies were born, they were asked for more money upfront and urged to fly to Mexico within 15 days.
