Current Event Cat of the Day: Roma Abduction

Current EVent Cat - Roma Couple

The Roma really are the worst… and if you don’t believe it, check out this promo for My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding. And if you still don’t believe it, read the rest of this post.

Greek authorities have launched a full out investigation after a blonde girl was discovered at a Gypsy camp in central Greece. When the Gypsy camp was raided last week, police found more than just the usual stash of weapons and drugs. Greek authorities noticed a four-year-old girl with pale skin, light blonde hair and blue eyes – clearly unrelated to any of the Roma in the camp. The girl was taken from the camp and put into a group home where social workers say she is recovering from “bad living conditions and poor hygiene.” Subsequent DNA tests concluded she is not related to the people claiming to be her parents.

The Roma couple – a woman aged 40 and a 39-year-old man – are due to appear in court over the incident but they insist she was given to them legitimately by the birth mother. But the woman also had false papers that claimed she had given birth to six children within a 10-month period.. so she’s not exactly reliable… plus she’s a gypsy.

Authorities are now investigating if the little girl, named Maria, could be related to rumors of child trafficking in the Roma community. The first step is to find out the girl’s identity and track down her mother. Then investigators can learn more about the alleged child trafficking ring – or perhaps she was just abducted for forced labour/street begging.

Either way, I bet those French students protesting Roma deportations are rethinking their position…
