MOSCOW, November 26 (Itar-Tass) - The head of Russia’s Investigative Committee, Alexander Bastrykin, has asked United States Attorney General Eric Holder to check for violations of children’s rights in the recent adoption of 26 Russian children by American citizens, investigative committee spokesman Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass.
In his letter, Bastrykin said he hoped for future co-operation with the U.S attorney, stressing that Russia’s Investigative Committee paid special attention to the protection of rights and interests of children who fell victims to any type of crime.
Rights and health abuses of adopted children from Russia onto U.S. territory have already been discussed between the two countries at different levels but, said spokesman Markin, "it continues to be a burning question”.
Bastrykin's investigation is calling for copies of an inquiry by the Russian Investigative Committee into possible violations in "the cases of Ann Barnes /Anna Fayzzulina, born 1994, Inga Watcott /Inga Kurasova, born 1985, Dmitry Stuart and 23 other adopted children.
