Surrogates Summoned to Court IN CAMBODIA as Parents Left in Limbolpasigroup
Recent Article again reiterates that Officials in Cambodia are drafting Exit strategy. Its just wait and Watch but ultimately All will get to leave.
Cambodian women identified as surrogate mothers hired by a jailed Australian nurse have been summoned to testify against their employer in court, but have failed to turn up partly out of fear of what might happen, according to a judge.
Ros Piseth, an investigating judge at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court, said on Tuesday the women had been summoned for questioning in an ongoing investigation into surrogacy broker Tammy Davis-Charles, who was charged in November for her role in connecting surrogate mothers with foreign parents.
Officials were quick to reassure intending parents they would be allowed to take the children home if they stepped forward and took responsibility for them, but some have since become stuck in the country, unable to leave with their newborn babies.
Ms. Bun Eng said parents with surrogate babies were forbidden from leaving the country with their newborns until a newly drafted exit strategy was approved.
“We have already prepared it, but we need to have it checked by the committee in order to have it for the implementation,” she said.
