Girl’s discovery prompts inquiry

GREECEAthens — Prosecutors across Greece were ordered Tuesday to conduct emergency checks of birth records from the past six years, after the arrest of a couple on suspicion of abducting a little girl triggered fears of widespread welfare fraud. The blond-haired, fair-skinned girl, known as Maria and believed to be 5 or 6, drew the attention of police during a raid on a Gypsy camp last week because she looked unlike the couple raising her. DNA tests showed they were not her biological parents as claimed on her birth certificate. The mystery of the girl’s identity has attracted the interest of investigators and parents involved in missing-child cases around the world. The case has also raised concern among human rights groups that Europe’s Roma, or Gypsy, community is being unfairly targeted.
