Only one child would be too many, but I must ask about where the BBC takes the number from: there are 900 cases on different Spanish courts right now under investigation. There is a big jump to 300k. Just saying.

This is horrifying, If this doesn't categorize them as a criminal organization I don't know what does.

Thanks for this post. I'd never heard of this scandal in the mainstream media.
