Free text DCI collection of newspaper articles ( Document N0 30 in Dossier on Inter-Country Adoption - No. DCI 5565) Several newspaper articles (August and November 1991) from Colombia quoting DNI-Colombia Executive Secretary Mr. Alberto Guzman Florez on the subject of international adoption; in his view, the CRC (art 20 and 21) encourages international adoptions, thus agravating the existing trafficking of children from third world countries (which exposes them to all kinds of abuse) and gives legitimacy to governmental lack of interest in improving conditions that create the problems of abandonment .
