Upon learning from the media that the criminal act - prohibited sexual activity was committed against two children from Negotin, the Protector of Citizens instigated an investigation to control work legality and regularity of the towns’ Social Welfare Center.

The Protector of Citizens learned from the media that the perpetrator of this act had been arrested, but due to the possibility of endangering or violating child’s rights and best interests, it requested SWC Negotin to submit within 15 days a detailed report on the actions, measures and activities taken so far.

In addition, SWC Negotin is to notify the Protector of Citizens whether the families of these children have been on the Center’s records, as well as whether there have been previous reports, knowledge or suspicion of possible abuse, violence or neglect of children.
