Woman fined Dh10k for illegal baby adoption

By Staff

An Arab woman who apparently has no children decided to adopt a new born boy three years ago but did not follow official rules followed in such cases in Ras Al Khaimah.

When the boy was nearly three years old, the woman took the boy to register him at nursery for the current scholar year but failed to produce any identifying documents.

A court in the Northern Emirate found the unnamed woman guilty of failing to follow official regulations when she adopted the baby.

“The court decided to fine the woman Dh10,000 for adopting an unknown baby without following the official regulations in such cases,” the Arabic language daily Alkhaleej said without mentioning whether the woman would be allowed to keep the child.
