The anti-human trafficking unit of the Police service has confirmed the arrest of an American couple for allegedly trafficking four Ghanaian children.

Sol and Christine Moghadam were picked up last Friday as they were about to enplane with the children to their base in California.

The children, two boys, believed to be between 10 and 13 and two younger girls were found together with the couple's biological children.

Director of Operations at the Police Criminal Investigations Department, Frank Kwofie, who confirmed the arrest to Joy News, says investigations have started.

According to him, the couple claim to have documents that the children have been adopted but intelligence suggested otherwise.

He said they have previously had documents purporting to have children adopted but it turned out to be false documents.

Joy News has discovered a video blog in which the couple narrated the processes they followed in the adoption of the children.
