HA NOI — A 44-year-old woman from Ha Noi's Long Bien District was arrested on Monday for selling a newborn baby.
The baby's natural mother had allegedly given the baby to the woman whom she asked to find adoptive parents.
Instead, she allegedly sold the baby to another woman for VND50 million (US$2,480).
She was found out when she took the baby to the National Hospital of Obstetrics and Gynaecology for a birth certificate. She claimed the baby had been born out of wedlock. — VNS
