Two residents of Grozny sentenced for selling newborn boy

In Chechnya, the court pronounced the verdict against Elambaeva and Djamkhaeva, two local residents, accused of selling a newborn child. Each of both women was sentenced to four years of imprisonment.

According to investigators and prosecutors, in this February, Khava Djamkhaeva assisted local resident Zarema Elambaeva in childbirth. "Then, by agreement with the mother of a newborn child, Djamkhaeva gave the baby to another person. Thus, the women have committed a criminal offense," noted an official from the Prosecutor's Office of Chechnya.

Let us remind you that on September 17, it became known that in Chechnya, law enforcers opened criminal proceedings against a resident of Grozny, who in last September by agreement with his acquaintance, a resident of the Republic of Dagestan, gave her 5-month-old girl to spouses living in the Grozny District of Chechnya. The defendant is also charged with human trafficking.

In April, Indira Kushalieva, a resident of Chechnya, was sentenced to three years of imprisonment on charges of selling her newborn baby.
