FRANCE-CHAD-CHARITY-TRIAL

French doctor Philippe Van Winkelberg speaks to journalists at the Paris courthouse on February 12, 2013, after the deliberation in the trial of members of former French charity organisation Arche de Zoe (Zoe's Ark), accused of illegal involvement in adoption procedures. The court sentenced two French aid workers to two years in jail for attempting to illegally bring 103 children from Chad to France for adoption, falsely claiming they were orphans from Darfur. Eric Breteau, who founded the Zoe's Ark charity that was involved in the failed attempt, and his partner Emilie Lelouch, were tried in absentia after refusing to show up for the proceedings.
