The Centre for International Legal Protection of Children and Youth (CIPC) has finally received the missing post-adoption reports over the Slovak children adopted by families in Italy. The centre will comment on them as soon as it reads them, the SITA newswire reported on April 16.

The adoptions to Italy were halted on February 19 on the heels of a visit to the country on February 13 by Andrea Císarová, the head of the CIPC, a branch of the Labour Ministry, to discuss the missing post-adoption reports. She met with representatives of the Italian Commission for International Adoptions (CAI) and inquired about the reports. However, she was only able to access a few of them, according to the Sme daily.

Slovakia says it is interested in continuing adoptions with Italy since it has reported several positive cases during the past 10 years. At the moment about 269 Slovak children live in Italy, of which 10 percent are handicapped, SITA wrote.
