520 The decision of the Australian adoptive parents shocked
senior Australian judges interviewed by Foreign
Correspondent. "It's a criminal offence in many places. I
think it's an appalling thing." - Australian judge The
extraordinary case of the twin boy left behind in India
was first revealed by Foreign Correspondent and ABC News
earlier this year. But his identity and fate have stayed a
mystery. "Was the child sold? Was the child left on the
street? What has happened to the child?" - Australian
judge "Whether he's been placed in a rich, well to do
family where he gets every amenity, we don't know." - Arun
Dohle, child protection advocate Reporter Samantha Hawley
teams up with two Indian child protection campaigners as
they weave through Delhi's labyrinthine bureaucracy and
backstreets on a hunt for the twins' birth records, the
boy's adoption papers and details of the surrogate mother
and Australian parents. Hawley reveals how the case
worried Australian consular officials in Delhi. Australian
High Commission staff tried desperately to persuade the
Australian family to take both twins back home. But
Canberra sent approval for citizenship and a single
passport to be given to just one child - the girl -
despite international commercial surrogacy being outlawed
in the Australian parents' home state. "I would describe
it as aiding and abetting the Australian couple abandoning
the child." - senior New Delhi lawyer Shekar Nephade "We
have done everything legal." - Australian father of the
boy left behind In this tragic story about one baby boy
who became the by-product of an unruly $500 million
industry, two leading judges tell Foreign Correspondent
it's now time for the Australian Government to take a lead
in reforming the system.
