Dutch Justice Minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin has asked the Dutch childcare inspectorate to investigate the adoption of children from China.

The Hague - Dutch Justice Minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin has asked the Dutch childcare inspectorate to investigate the adoption of children from China.

His request is in response to revelations in a television programme that in one of China’s provinces the authorities force parents to give their children up for adoption.

The children are then adopted by foreigners, including Dutch couples. On their papers it is stated that the children have no parents.

Hirsch Ballin will seek contact with the Chinese authorities via the Dutch embassy in China.
