On June 3, I posted about the Sierra leone investigation into Maine Adoption Placement Services or MAPS regarding the disappearance of approximately 30 children.
UPDATE: "Cabinet has endorsed for a commission of inquiry to be set up by government to look into the child adoption saga." Once the commission has been set up, it would invite for questioning those that were involved throughout the adoption process and look at whether or not the adoption itself was done legally and with the full knowledge of the parents.
Help A Needy Child International (HANCI), a local child welfare organisation that facilitated the adoption of the children, had earlier claimed that the adoption was done legally and that parents of the children were fully informed throughout the process.
However, during a meeting with the minister of social welfare, gender and children's affairs last month, the aggrieved parents demanded the immediate return of their children. They claimed that they were 'hoodwinked' by HANCI into believing that there children would be well taken care of and educated up to university level.
