Children for Sale

 


Liberian boys
In Liberia a loophole in the law means that anyone can set themselves up as a private adoption business.

Despite a government moratorium on inter-country adoptions, children are still being sent abroad by some unscrupulous individuals and organisations who see the chance of making a profit.

For Assignment Nadene Ghouri goes undercover to expose the trade in children by some charities registered in the United States and operating as businesses in Liberia.

First broadcast in February 2009
