Heartbreaking moment mother tries to sell 7-year-old son at shopping mall for £4,000

A MOTHER is under criminal investigation after footage emerged of her allegedly trying to sell her seven-year-old son in a shopping mall for £4,000.

Authorities said the woman, 36-year-old Nargiza, advertised online, claiming she needed money to pay off outstanding debts.

The mother was arrested after officials from anti-slavery charity Alternativa posed as a shopper in response to her apparent advertisement.

A video clip shows the moment she is said to meet the “buyer” in the food court of a shopping mall in Yekaterinburg, Russia.

She took the boy with her and said he “didn’t mind” being moved to a new family, it was confirmed.

The stinging campaign to save the boy comes amid concerns in Russia about children being trafficked into sex slaves or for body parts with the involvement of organized crime gangs.

A spokesperson said: “In the end, we hope it’s just a made-up story, that this is someone’s stupid prank or a money scam.

“However, when our team along with members of the organized crime investigation team left to ‘deal’, we witnessed the boy being sold.

“Nargiza took the money and gave the baby to someone she didn’t know,” they added.

After investigation, authorities allege that the woman tried to sell her eldest son because her husband “didn’t like him.”

Sources said the woman lived with the man – with whom she has two children – in a two-room apartment.

The boy she allegedly tried to sell belonged to a previous partner.

The woman has now been detained under Russia’s child trafficking law, and her son has been placed under medical care.

It came as Oleg Melnikov, of Alternativa, had earlier warned of an increase in Russian women selling their children compared with previous years.

He said women are often blamed for financial difficulties but that “low moral standards” are also responsible for their actions.

“We know these children have no chance of getting legal documents,” he said.

“They will fall into the hands of street beggars or pedophiles.”

Concerns have been expressed that children may also be trafficked for or taken for body parts by sex offenders amid a number of disturbing reports in recent years.
