A MOTHER who tried to sell her newborn baby for €5000 in 2008 was given a one year suspended jail sentence this week.
The mother, the couple who tried to purchase her child and three go-betweens were sentenced by a Benidorm judge.
It was reported that the mother exchanged her three-day-old baby for €5000 with intermediaries who passed the baby on to a couple living on the Costa Blanca.
However, when the couple tried to register the baby in Spain’s Civil Register, the deal came to light and an investigation was launched.
The couple received a six month suspended sentence and they and the three intermediaries were banned from attaining guardianship for four years.
