The head of the Fund for Children in Need, Marie Vodickova, has filed criminal charges against a police official, Alena Plskova, who said the force would search for women who leave their babies in baby-boxes. Ms Plskova said the mother's identity had to be established in case the baby's parents were addicted to drugs or alcohol. But Ms Vodickova said the police should catch criminals, not unfortunate mothers who had a serious reason to give up their child. She said the loss of anonymity might put some mothers off using the baby-boxes.
