Chinese Couple In Trouble For Selling Their 18-Day-Old Baby Online For $3,500 To Buy Latest Iphone

Chinese man has been jailed for selling his 18-day-old baby online so he could buy a new iPhone. The unnamed man, from Tong’un, Fujian Province, used social media to sell his daughter for $3,500 (23,000 Yuan) so he could buy the Apple product and a motorbike, a court in China heard. The man, identified only as ‘A Duan’, found a buyer through social media network QQ after spending time in internet chat rooms, Epoch Times reports. The couple, who were 19-year-old when the baby was unintentionally conceived, decided to sell the child after beginning to struggle financially.

The mother of the child, identified as ‘Xiao Mei’, worked several part-time jobs but eventually agreed to let her partner sell her baby to buy the goods. I myself was adopted, and many people in my hometown send their kids to other people to raise them. I really didn’t know that it was illegal." She reportedly told police.
The buyer, who has not been named, is said to have bought the baby for his sister. She still has the baby while officials decide on the best course of action.

Mr 'A Duan' was given a three year jail sentence while Xiao Mei was given a two-and-a-half year suspended sentence.
