18-Days Old Daughter Sold On Facebook To Buy iPhone
The couple, who were 19-year-old when the baby was unintentionally conceived, decided to sell the child after beginning to struggle financially.
The mother of the child, given the pseudonym ‘Xiao Mei’, worked several part-time jobs but eventually agreed to let her partner sell her to buy the goods.
She reportedly told police: ‘I myself was adopted, and many people in my hometown send their kids to other people to raise them. I really didn’t know that it was illegal.’
Both the mom and dad have received jail sentences, though the judge was lenient on the penalties because he understood their poor economic circumstances had a huge influence on their decision. A Duan will serve three years in prison, while the mother only received a two and half year sentence.
Child trafficking has been a long-standing problem in China, but despite the efforts of the authorities, the sinister practice is thriving, leading to thousands of families being torn apart.
The original father was arrested after the “new father” handed himself into authorities. A Duan was handed a three-year jail term. The baby’s biological mother was tracked down by police investigating the illegal sale.
