Directia Judeteana pentru Protectia Copilului Constanta reclama ca nu mai stie nimic de soarta a 52 de copii care au
fost adoptati international in perioada 1997-2000.
Seful Directiei, Petre Dinica, a declarat ca Oficiul Roman pentru Adoptie (ORA) nu le-a inaintat nici un raport
postadoptie, asa cum era procedura. Cei 52 de copii sint doar o parte din totalul de 422 care au fost adoptati international
in intervalul amintit. Ei au ajuns in Canada (1), Cipru (1), Franta (3), Grecia (6), Israel (27), SUA (7) si Italia (7).
Reprezentantii Oficiului Roman pentru Adoptie au confirmat ca aceste rapoarte nu s-au primit, in ciuda insistentelor catre
tarile unde au fost adoptati copiii. Alina Mahera, juristul ORA, ne-a spus ca, in baza Ordonantei nr. 25/1997, copilul dat
spre adoptie nationala sau internationala se monitorizeaza timp de doi ani. “Cind organismele straine veneau la autorizare,
isi luau acest angajament, care, de altfel, era asumat si de familiile adoptatoare”, ne-a declarat Alina Mahera. Din pacate,
nu exista nici o sanctiune pentru cei care nu si-au indeplinit angajamentele: “Statul roman nu poate sa aplice sanctiuni pe
un teritoriu strain”, a adaugat interlocutorul nostru.
