An Australian nurse and fertility specialist has been arrested for allegedly running an illegal surrogacy service in Cambodia, the country’s anti-human trafficking police said on Sunday.
The arrest was made just weeks after Cambodia became the latest country to ban commercial surrogacy.
Tammy Davis-Charles, 49, was arrested on Friday along with two Cambodians during a raid on a rented house in Phnom Penh, Keo Thea, head of the Anti-Human Trafficking Office, told AFP.
“She has been arrested for being an intermediary in surrogacy and for falsifying documents,” Pol Col Keo Thea said.
“Australian people who wanted kids would contact her and she would charge US$50,000 for each request,” he said.
California has Surrogacy Agencies that have assisted many Australian Intended Parents.
