Trinidad: BABY SOLD-Venezuelan mother flies out with US$20,000

A TWO-MONTH-OLD baby boy who was sold to a Trincity couple for US$20,000 one month ago was rescued from a house in Trincity on Wednesday morning and is now in the care of the Children’s Authority. The baby’s mother, who is a Venezuelan domestic worker, reportedly sold the baby to a local pilot and his Italian wife who is a businesswoman.

She left for Venezuela after collecting the cash, but later contacted the Venezuelan Embassy in this country to say she had been tricked into giving up her baby and wanted to be reunited with him.

The mother returned to the country and gave information to the Counter Trafficking and Child Protection units and the Trincity couple was put under surveillance.
