Baby traffickers get death sentence in China

China,Crime/Disaster/Accident, Mon, 26 Nov 2012 IANS

Beijing, Nov 26 (IANS) Two ringleaders of a baby trafficking gang in China have been sentenced to death with a two?year reprieve.

Cai Liaochao and Chen Hongfeng, of the gang based in Ya'an of southwestern Sichuan province, were accused of selling 14 babies between July 2010 and May 2011, the Shanghai Daily reported Monday.

Other four members of the gang received jail terms from three years to 15 years.

A local court said the gang purchased newborn babies from poverty?stricken families and sold them in Shandong, Fujian and Henan provinces.

A boy is priced at over 30,000 yuan ($4,800) and a girl around 20,000 yuan.

Their crime came to light when three people were caught trafficking three babies from Sichuan to Shandong in May 2011.

Cai and Chen were given the death sentence because they had earlier been jailed five years for the same crime.
