Now it seems that Jorge Puello, the “lawyer” who advised the Baptist group trying to bring 33 Haitian children to the Dominican Republic, was indicted in Vermont 7 years ago but skipped to Canada.
The guy is wanted in El Salvador for trafficking in people as well.
The issue of missing, exploited and kidnapped children continues and deserves a closer look by the U.S. media. And the journalists need to understand the laws and terms involved.
Some excellent resources to start with:
- National Center for Missing and Exploited Children
- International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children
- Links to international organizations and law enforcement agencies dealing with this issue.
