DNA test points to teenage mother's father
The father of the 12-year-old girl from Groningen who gave birth last month during a school trip has been arrested. The Public Prosecutor's office says it has serious suspicions that the man sexually abused his daughter and caused her pregnancy.
An investigation by the Netherlands Forensics Institute NFI reveals that the 52-year-old is almost certainly the baby's father. Last week he gave a DNA sample which was compared to that of the baby.
The girl said that she was not aware that she was expecting a child. Nobody at school had noticed the pregnancy. The girl and her baby have been placed in foster care and are being protected from the media.http://cdn.radionetherlands.nl/data/files/baby-feet--clprt.jpg
