Sri Lanka: nun cleared of adoption-profiteering charges
CWN - December 15, 2011
A nun who was arrested in November in Sri Lanka and charged with profiteering from adoptions has been cleared of all charges.
Sister Mary Eliza, the director of a home for unwed mothers run by the Missionaries of Charity, had been accused of "selling" the children to adoptive parents. The charge--which was apparently based on an anonymous phone call--has been dismissed, and a local magistrate scolded the National Child Protection Authority for acting "irresponsibly" by raiding the institution.
