愛爾蘭收養。數以千計的記錄沒有在截止日期前公布

數以千計的被收養者根據愛爾蘭共和國的一項新法律要求獲得他們的出生記錄,但在周三的最後期限前沒有收到這些記錄。

愛爾蘭收養局和兒童及家庭機構Tusla表示,在6000多份申請中,只有65份得到了處理。

這些請求是根據《2022年出生信息和追蹤法案》提出的,該法案賦予被收養者自動查看其原始出生證明的權利。

該法案於2022年6月成為法律。

這些機構說,延遲的部分原因是,法律只給官員一個月的時間來尋找記錄。

收養權聯盟的聯合創始人Claire McGettrick告訴RTÉ,最後期限是 "不現實的",因為根據法律,信息是如何定義和分類的。

她說,部長一路上 "沒有徵求我們的意見",系統的設計沒有他們的參與,而且成立的執行小組也沒有任命一個受影響的人加入小組。

"這是部長造成的局面,他承諾建立一個具有里程碑意義的系統,承諾建立一個全新的系統,他在沒有我們的情況下創建和設計了這個系統,反而造成了混亂,"McGettrick女士說。

以前,被收養者必須向當局申請,以了解其出生時的身份。

父母能夠反對並阻止信息的發布。

塔爾薩說,任何等待記錄的人都將在1月底前收到記錄。


Thousands of adopted people who requested their birth records under a new law in the Republic of Ireland did not receive them by the deadline on Wednesday.

The Adoption Authority of Ireland and the child and family agency Tusla said that out of more than 6,000 requests, just 65 had been concluded.

The requests were made under the Birth Information and Tracing Bill 2022, which gives adopted people an automatic right to see their original birth certificates.

It became law in June 2022.

The agencies said part of the reason for the delay was that the law gave officials just one month to find records.

Claire McGettrick, co-founder of the Adoption Rights Alliance, told RTÉ that the deadline was "unrealistic" because of how information is defined and categorised under the legislation.

She said the minister "failed to consult us" along the way, the system was designed without them, and that the implementation group created did not see an affected person appointed to the group.

"This is a situation of the minister’s making, he has promised a landmark system, promised a brand spanking new system and he has created and designed it without us and has created chaos instead," Ms McGettrick said.

Previously, adoptees had to apply to the authorities to find out their identity at birth.

Parents were able to object and block the release of information.

Tulsa said anyone waiting for records would receive them by the end of January.
