An obstetrician accused of trafficking seven babies, one of whom died, was brought to court in northwestern Shaanxi Province today.
Zhang Shuxia, a doctor with Fuping County Maternal and Child Health Care Hospital, is accused of selling seven babies to human traffickers after persuading their parents to give up their allegedly “sick" newborns.
On July 20, a mother named Dong, suspected her baby had been abducted and reported to police. Zhang is accused of falsely claiming that her child had a congenital disease, according to Weinan Intermediate People's Court. The baby was found healthy in neighboring Henan Province on August 5.
Two twin baby girls were also rescued from neighboring Shanxi Province and Shandong Province in east China on August 10 after their mother Wang, complained to the police in Fuping.
Nine suspects were detained in August, including Zhang Shuxia. The hospital's president, Wang Li, two other senior hospital managers, and three county officials were dismissed over the matter.—Xinhua
