This is the Roma couple who have appeared in court in Greece accused of abducting a four-year-old girl.
The youngster, known as ‘Maria’, was discovered during a raid on a Roma community in central Greece.
The pair, named by Greek police as Salis Christos and Sali Selini, told magistrates ‘Maria’ had been given to them by her mother and a Bulgarian Roma, when she was still a baby.
The pair’s lawyer has asked for the authorities to trace a mobile phone they say was used in the handing over of the baby.
Kostas Katsavos added: “Our clients’ claim is that ‘we never abducted this child we just adopted her’, in a way that was not legal. That we can confess,”
The couple’s testimony continues.
Officers then charged Christos and Selini with the girl’s abduction.
