Illegal Adoption Procedures: At What Cost?


A recent case of children who were illegally adopted in Penang and then 'rescued' by the authorities from their adoptive parents recently made the news, notably because the children were requesting to reunite with their adoptive families.

Sharmila Sekaran, a lawyer defending the children in the ensuing court case, and James Nayagam, a SUHAKAM commissioner with a passion for children's rights, join Meera Sivasothy to discuss the ethics of illegal adoption, and what the implications of separating the children from their families were.
