ACHEH FIELD REPORT -- CHILD TRAFFICKING?

From: Djuli/SMS
Category: Acheh Tsunami
Date: 01/03/05

Comments

curious sms message forwarded to me says: Dibutuhkan orang tua yang Muslim, bersedia mengadopsi anak-anak 0-3 tahun korban bencana Aceh yang akan segera dievakuasi ke Jakarta-Bandung-Batam, hub. Raihana: 08158700064.

(Wanted parents who are Muslim, prepared to adopt children aged 0-3 years victims of Aceh catastrophy that are going to be evacuated to Jakarta-Bandung-Batam, contact Raihana: 08158700064)

A friend in Jakarta telephoned the woman, she confirmed the availability of the babies but when he asked too many questions the woman hang up.

Could this be a child trafficking ring? It is not clear if the woman wanted to prevent the children from being transported to Batam (famous for its criminalities), Bandung and Jakarta, or that she is offering the children at these three points, thus making herself part of the trafficking syndicate. End of field report.
