The case of the disappearing babies

The Public Prosecutor in Algeciras has opened an investigation into the disappearance of several babies from the municipal hospital in La Línea de la Concepción in 1967.

The case came to light a few months ago when a number of mothers began reporting the disappearance of babies from the old municipal hospital and the evidence so far points to some sort of civil or criminal offence.

The crime may be limited to the registration of births under a different name and could end up falling foul of the statute of limitations, the events having occurred more than forty years ago.

Why nothing was reported earlier remains a mystery.
