WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, June 20) – Samoa Attorney General Brenda Heather-Latu says she plans to table a bill in parliament this week to amend the law on adoptions.

This follows an inquest into the death of a one-year old baby at a house where some children are being cared for before they are adopted.

The infant’s natural parents claim their daughter died from malnutrition.

Authorities have been closely monitoring adoptions after questions were also being raised as to how another U.S. adoption agency, Focus on Children, was operating.
