      Jewish ring involved in kidnapping
      and trafficking Latino children

      November 28, 2003

      An Israeli citizen who manages a Costa Rica
      adoption agency faces an INTERPOL detention
      order as a suspect in the trafficking and kidnapping
      of babies as well as the murder of one child in his
      care who died from lack of medical attention in
      Colombia.

      Rolf Salomón Levy Berger, also known as Rafael
      Leyva or Rafael Levy, founded the International
      Adoption Resources Foundation in Costa Rica to
      facilitate international adoptions despite the fact that
      he was not certified to do so. This same agency has
      offices in Boca Raton, Florida, where Levy is the
      "international coordinator".

      Levy, who resides in Miami Beach, Florida, faces a
      Colombian arrest warrant for illegal actions between
      the year 2000 and 2002. In the INTERPOL report,
      he also is accused of the theft of babies.

      According to Colombian authorities, one of the
      stolen babies, only described as 8-month-old
      "Gregory", died of "neglect and a lack of medical
      attention" whilst in a home under the care of one of
      Levy's workers.

      The Costa Rican authorities have requested an
      international arrest order against Levy through the
      First District Penal Court in San Jose as a result of
      an investigation into the trafficking of Central
      American babies.

      "According to the investigations, Levy was the
      person who formed the Costa Rican Foundation,
      "Fundación IAR, Sí a la Vida" before the jailed
      notary Carlos Hernán Robles on June 11th this year.
      In the home of this same foundation in the urban
      area known as La Uruca, nine Guatemalan babies
      were found. With Levy's precedents he should be
      considered as a dangerous person and we ask the
      international authorities to comply with his
      immediate detention", insisted Bruce Harris,
      Regional Director for Latin American Programs of
      Casa Alianza, an affiliate of the New York based
      Covenant House.

      In Colombia, Levy was the legal representative of
      an Israeli based agency called "El Niño y sus
      Padres" (The Child and his Parents), dedicated to
      the promotion of international adoptions.

      According to Colombian police reports, Levy and
      at least four other people – who also face criminal
      charges – searched for pregnant women in different
      areas of the country and offered them economic
      help in return for their babies. They would register
      the newborns and keep them in one of their
      properties until their adoption. This is a similar
      manner in which they appear to have functioned in
      Guatemala with the eventual trafficking of the
      Guatemalan babies to Costa Rica for international
      adoption in the United States and Asia.

      Casa Alianza, an organization dedicated to
      protecting children's human rights, has made an
      urgent appeal to Central American authorities
      regarding international criminal networks who are
      stealing babies in the region with the purpose of
      then sending them for lucrative international
      adoptions.

      "It was over 7 years ago when Casa Alianza
      uncovered the illegal trafficking of babies from
      Honduras and later in Guatemala. In the last few
      months the illegal adoptions situation has been
      repeated in Nicaragua and Costa Rica", added
      Harris.

      Since 1996, Casa Alianza has documented and
      denounced illegal adoptions from Guatemala – the
      country that sends more children in international
      adoptions per capita than any other country in the
      world, ninety percent of which go to the United
      States. Guatemala does not even have an adoption
      law and recently the Guatemalan Constitutional
      Court made an attempt to reject the country's
      adherence to the Hague Convention on International
      Adoptions.
