The media in Ghana has begun covering the story of Sol and Christine Moghadam, the American adoptive parents accused of child trafficking.
The website Ghana MMA reports:
The anti-human trafficking unit of the Police service has confirmed the arrest of an American couple for allegedly trafficking four Ghanaian children.
Sol and Christine Moghadam were picked up last Friday as they were about to enplane with the children to their base in California.
The children, two boys, believed to be between 10 and 13 and two younger girls were found together with the couple’s biological children.
Director of Operations at the Police Criminal Investigations Department, Frank Kwofie, who confirmed the arrest to Joy News, says investigations have started.
According to him, the couple claim to have documents that the children have been adopted but intelligence suggested otherwise.
He said they have previously had documents purporting to have children adopted but it turned out to be false documents.
The Moghadam's situation is snowballing into an international incident. This morning, I found three news articles on the case; this evening, more than 250 news outlets have posted articles covering the case (though most are simply reprinting the Associated Press report.)
Meanwhile, the Moghadams have taken their blog down -- perhaps due to harrassment from internet trolls? Or were they advised to do so by legal counsel?
