A lawyer for a Roma couple accused of abducting a young girl in Greece has told ITV News they were given her as a baby, when she was five days' old, as part of an adoption.
Constantinos Katsavos said the child was passed to the couple by her mother, an impoverished Bulgarian women, and that by finding her it will prove them not guilty of abducting a minor.
"It is our effort to find the physical mother," Mr Katsavos said. "If the mother is found I think (the verdict against the couple) will be not guilty."
A couple will stand trial after being charged with abducting a mystery young blonde girl found by Greek police in a raid on a Roma camp.
Greek authorities have launched a worldwide appeal to find the parents of a mystery girl found during a search of a Roma camp.
