Parents of Stolen Baby Contemplate Legal Action Against Victoria Jubilee Hospital


The Victoria Jubilee Hospital in Kingston is facing the possibility of a lawsuit from the parents of a baby who was stolen last month from the maternity hospital.

The Police say it’s believed the baby was snatched by people involved in a child stealing ring.

A woman was taken into custody earlier this week and is facing criminal charges. She was arrested when she attempted to register the baby this week.

A DNA test yesterday confirmed that the parents of the child are Suzette Whyte and Sinclair Hutton. The baby was returned to his parents today.

The parents have retained prominent Attorney-at-law, Peter Champagnie, who spoke with Nationwide News.
