MOSCOW, July 20, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s far eastern Amur regional legal authorities opened a criminal case over negligence in processing documents for adoption of a child from Russia who died in Italy, spokesman of Russian Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
The boy was killed in Italy overnight to July 18. He was adopted in May 2012 and was on a register in the consular department of Russian Embassy in Italy’s capital, Rome. The Russian Foreign Ministry stated earlier that adoptive father of the boy Massimo Maravalle had killed the adopted Russian child.
“The decision to open a criminal case was taken after the procedural inquiry which had obtained information about possible negligence, which state officials in Amur region, local self-government bodies committed in processing adoption documents for a boy in 2012,” he said.
Relatives of the Russian boy and Russian citizens were denied adoption of the child.
“Detectives will also give a legal assessment to fulfilment of officials’ duties to process and check documents over the denial to child’s adoption by his relatives and rejected addresses of Russian citizens who wanted to adopt the boy as well as their duties to control the conditions of life and upbringing of the child in the foster family,” the committee’s spokesman said.
Detectives should find all details of the murder within the criminal case.
“Russian Investigative Committee protects rights and legitimate interests of children who are Russian citizens no matter where they are staying and intends to conduct a thorough and unbiased investigation of the processing of the documents over child’s adoption to foreign adoptive parents,” Markin added.
Italy’s Pescara city prosecutor’s office has earlier opened a criminal case against adoptive father of the boy Massimo Maravalle. According to the preliminary theory, a mental disorder could have made the defendant kill the adopted child.
