Speaking about a judgment which agreed to have the baby girl adopted in the UK Stefano Oliva told ITV News: "I've been able to read the judge's decision and it's completely contradictory in its motivations.

It says the mother was well in her health, that she strongly desired to live with her baby, that she really wanted to go back to Italy… it's positive about her family, the relationship between mother and daughter - but inexplicably it concludes with the adoption order."
