Social worker admits to signing adoption papers for alleged 'stolen child'
By:
ThinkSpain , Thursday, September 20, 2012

A social worker with the Spanish Adoptioin Assocation (AEPA) Isabel de la Vega today acknowledged in court that it was her signature on the adoption papers relating to an alleged "stolen child" at the Clínica Santa Cristina in Madrid in 1982 but maintained that her relation with 'sor María' was "purely administrative".

The judge, Adolfo Carretero, is still intending to charge a nun - María Gómez Valbuena - known as 'sor María', for unlawful detention and falsifying public documents.

Carretero heard Isabel de la Vega's testimony today, as it is her signature that appears on the adoption papers for the chiled who was allegedly "stolen".

Outside the court, mothers and fathers, all members of the Madrid Association for Stolen Babies waved banners and chanted "¿where are our children?" or "apologise to the mothers".

Before the judge, Isabel de la Vega acknowledged that she did indeed sign the adoption papers for Pilar Alcalde, but said that she had no recollection of this precise case, nor did she explain "why payments had been made or why there was no signature of maternal consent", said sources within the court.

In April this year, the plaintiff in this case, María Luisa Torres, swore before the judge that Sor María (pictured going into court) had told her she was taking her baby away because she was an "adultress" as the baby's father was not her husband.

Sor María, for her part, exercised her right not to make a declaration in court, although in an open letter to the media she rejected the accusations against her, saying the idea of separating a newborn from its mother was "repugnant" to her.
