Of Statelessness and Stolen Children

A report from MalaysiaKini has highlighted the issue of baby snatching - more specifically, alleging that the babies of stateless Bajau Laut women in Lahad Datu are being taken away, and given to waiting adoptive parents. The hospital has denied these claims, but an official investigation by the Health Ministry is underway. Meanwhile, we speak to S Vinothaa, the journalist who wrote this report, on these findings.
