Madrigal, now 49, said she would appeal the decision at the Supreme Court.Vela, who used to run a clinic, was the first to stand trial for involvement in the baby-trafficking scandal.However, this was over-ruled by the court.The baby-stealing practice began after Franco came to power following the 1936-39 civil war.Later, the practice was expanded to supposedly illegitimate babies and those from poor families.During the trial, Vela said he could not remember details about the operation of the clinic, which he ran for 20 years up to 1982 .
