The eight-year-old boy that was smuggled into Spain from Morocco in a suitcase last month has reportedly reunited with his mother, BBC reports!
Not surprising to us, Adou Ouattara was said to have been in a “terrible state” when he was found last month in a bag without air vents at the Spanish enclave of Ceuta.
The boy had to undergo DNA tests before the Spanish authorities would hand him over to his mother, who apparently lives legally on Spain’s Canary Islands.
“His mother cried. It’s a very beautiful day,” Maria Antonia Palomo, the Ceuta official in charge of juvenile affairs, told AFP.
The father, who also lives on the Canary Islands, reportedly tried to bring his son into Spain through legal means but his income was lower than the amount required by law, and he had to resort to other means to bring his son into Spain, but according to the report, he did not know that the mode of transport would involve a suitcase.
