Police on Sunday of August 4 rescued a newborn who was allegedly sold to human traffickers by an obstetrician in northwest China’s Shaanxi Province.

Six suspects involved in the human trafficking have been arrested.

The baby was recovered in a township in Anyang City of central China’s Henan Province at around 3 a.m. Sunday, but DNA tests must be conducted to confirm its identity, said a statement by the Fuping county government in Shaanxi.

The baby was in good condition, the statement said.

The baby boy was allegedly sold for 21,600 yuan (3,494 U.S. dollars) by an obstetrician from Fuping County Maternal and Child Health Care Hospital one day after he was born on July 16, according to the government.

The doctor, surnamed Zhang, has been detained on suspicions of human trafficking, local police said on Friday of August 2.

Police said Zhang allegedly obtained the baby by falsely claiming that the child had congenital diseases, convincing the mother to abandon treatment and allow the doctor to handle the baby.

The mother, a woman surnamed Dong, later realized that her baby might have been abducted and reported the case to police on July 20.

Two people from Shanxi Province surnamed Pan and Cui, who purchased the baby from Zhang, were also detained. They sold the baby for 30,000 yuan.

The hospital’s head Wang Li and her two deputies were sacked on Sunday over the trafficking case.

Local police said they are also investigating five other similar cases which also allegedly occurred in the same hospital.

A newborn baby who was allegedly sold to human traffickers by an obstetrician in northwest China’s Shaanxi Province was returned to his parents on Monday of August 5, local police said.

Yang Jianlong, a policeman from Fuping County where the alleged trafficking took place about 20 days ago, handed over the baby to Lai Guofeng and his wife at the county’s maternal and child health care hospital.

Yang said DNA tests confirmed the baby is Lai’s son.

The baby was allegedly sold for 21,600 yuan (3,494 U.S. dollars) by an obstetrician surnamed Zhang on the morning of July 17, one day after he was born in Fuping County Maternal and Child Health Care Hospital, according to the county government.

Zhang and five other suspects involved in the case have been detained on suspicion of human trafficking.

The baby was found in a township in Anyang City of neighboring Henan Province at around 3 a.m. Sunday and was in good condition.

The hospital’s head Wang Li and her two deputies were sacked on Sunday over the case.

Local police said they are investigating five other similar cases which allegedly occurred in the same hospital.  

 

 

 

China vows to seriously

punish newborn traffickers

 

By Li Huizi

 

Those involved in allegedly selling newborn babies to human traffickers are “morally degraded” individuals and “intolerable,” China’s top health commission spokesman said on Tuesday of August 6.

The National Health and Family Planning Commission called for severe punishments, and said it would impose stricter medical service management and strengthen medical ethics education nationwide to prevent such cases in the future, said spokesman Mao Qun’an.

Several newborn babies were allegedly sold to human traffickers by an obstetrician, surnamed Zhang, in Fuping County of northwest China’s Shaanxi Province, according to local police.

The case is a serious violation of laws and has impacted society, according to Shaanxi authorities.

It has exposed “loopholes in some medical facilities” and “a few medical staff member’s lack of legal awareness,” the local authorities said in a statement. The authorities added that the case severely infringed upon people’s interests and damaged the professional image of medical staff.

Doctor Zhang and five other suspects involved in the case have been detained on suspicion of human trafficking. The hospital’s head and her two deputies were sacked on Sunday, the statement said.

A baby was returned to his parents on Monday after DNA tests confirmed the child’s identity, police said.

The baby was allegedly sold for 21,600 yuan (3,494 U.S. dollars) by Zhang on the morning of July 17, one day after he was born in Fuping County Maternal and Child Health Care Hospital, according to the county government.

Police said Zhang allegedly obtained the baby by falsely claiming that the child had congenital diseases, convincing the mother to abandon treatment and allow the doctor to take care of the infant.

The mother, a woman surnamed Dong, later realized that her baby might have been abducted and reported the case to police on July 20.

The baby was found in a township in Anyang City of neighboring Henan Province at around 3 a.m. Sunday and was in good condition.

Local police said they are investigating five other similar cases which allegedly occurred in the same hospital.

The Fuping County Maternal and Child Health Care Hospital, as well as medical facilities nationwide, are undergoing an overhaul in relation to relevant laws and regulations in order to enhance legal awareness, ensure medical safety and effectively safeguard people’s health rights, according to the health commission.

allegedly sold by doctor

 

By Li Laifang and Shi zhiyong

 

Police in northwest China’s Shaanxi Province have rescued two twin newborn baby girls who were allegedly sold to human traffickers by a doctor.

The twins, who were born in early July to a woman surnamed Wang in Fuping County, were rescued from neighboring Shanxi Province and eastern Shandong Province respectively, said the Shaanxi provincial government on Thursday of August 8.

On Sunday of August 4, police rescued a newborn boy, also allegedly sold to human traffickers by the same doctor, who is surnamed Zhang and worked in Fuping County Maternal and Child Health Care Hospital.

Three newborns have thus far been rescued in the hospital scandal.

As of Thursday, police have received reports of 55 similar cases from local citizens, including 26 cases in which Zhang was allegedly involved. Police have launched investigations into five of the reported cases.

Zhang has been detained on suspicion of human trafficking.

In the first rescued baby case, Zhang allegedly obtained the infant by falsely claiming that the child had congenital diseases, convincing the mother to abandon treatment and allow the doctor to handle the baby.

The mother, a woman surnamed Dong, later realized that her baby might have been abducted and reported the incident to police on July 20.

Lou Qinjian, provincial governor of Shaanxi, on Thursday called the case “vile” and caused “extremely bad” social impact.

Lou said police will step up efforts to make a thorough probe into the scandal and those who are held responsible will be dealt with strictly.
