Politur gets street children off the street in Sosúa
The last few weeks we see more and more children, mostly boys between 5 and 12 years on the streets at night again, begging. The commander of the tourist police (Politur) in Sosúa, Major Francisco A. Rodríguez Rodríguez has ordered his police officers to get the children off the streets. The children are first temporarily housed in an orphanage while the police tries to trace their parents. The parents then get told that they have to raise their children well and are not allowed to send them out begging. If the police encounters the children more often, their parents will be severely fined.
For children for whom the parents or guardians can not to be traced, another solution has to be figured out.
