Russian wants US woman to testify over adoption
Russian ombudsman: American woman who sent adopted son back must testify in Moscow court
By The Associated Press

TOMILINO, Russia (AP) ' The Russian children's rights ombudsman says he wants an American woman who sent her young adopted son back to Russia to testify in a Moscow court.

Torry Hansen was living in Shelbyville, Tennessee, in April 2010 when she sent her then-7-year-old son on a plane alone back to Moscow with a note that said the boy was violent and she no longer wanted to keep him.

A Tennessee judge ruled last month that Hansen is liable for child support in a lawsuit brought by her former adoption agency.



Pavel Astakhov said Thursday he would like Hansen, who has sued him in a Moscow court, to testify at a hearing scheduled for next month.

Astakhov says the boy now lives in a private orphanage that spends the equivalent of about $2,300 a month on his housing and "psychological correction."
