The National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) is investigating possible violations to basic rights on the case of children sold in the state of Sonora, in response to a request by the Chamber of Representatives, according to the agency.

The CNDH decided to send inspectors to the city of Hermosillo on September 7 and 8 in order to get evidence, request information from the authorities and interview witnesses and people involved in the case.

"The National Commission of Human Rights will provide a timely follow-up to the evolution of the case and, in due time, will deliver a resolution in accordance to the law," he said.

The lower chamber of Congress recently passed an agreement to request the intervention of the CNDH in the investigation of human rights violations in the sale of babies in Sonora, where a network of human trafficking of small boys and girls was recently discovered.

The Attorney General of Sonora, Carlos Navarro, expressed on September 1 that until March this year there are records of nine newborn babies "embezzled from the mother's womb" to be sold to "people who were waiting to adopt legally."

Eight people have been arrested for the subtraction and traffic of the newborns, and eight more are wanted by the authorities.
