Residents of Ajijic, a town on the shore of Lake Chapala favored by American and Canadian retirees, told AP that Irish citizens looking to adopt Mexican children began appearing there at least four years ago.

The Irish couples are now back home and none have been charged with a crime.

Ireland’s Minister for Children, Frances FitzGerald, said: “Obviously, for any couple caught up in this, it’s a nightmare scenario.

“What you can’t have in Mexico is people going to local agencies or individuals doing private adoptions because they come back, there is going to be a difficulty.”
