Richter: More Slovak children taken into care in Great Britain

Social services in Great Britain took another 30 children away from their Slovak parents in the second half of 2012, Labour Minister Ján Richter told the parliamentary human rights committee on Thursday, March 14.

Social services in Great Britain took another 30 children away from their Slovak parents in the second half of 2012, Labour Minister Ján Richter told the parliamentary human rights committee on Thursday, March 14.

The reasons in individual cases varied, although all British legislative conditions were met for the children to be taken into care. "If these cases had happened in Slovakia, social services would have had no choice but to proceed in the same way even under the most liberal of Slovak laws. It was about parents being irresponsible towards their own children," Richter underlined, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

Richter said he expected a positive result in the case of certain children in Liverpool. The minister added, however, that it is imperative that all Slovaks who travel to Great Britain conform to its more stringent legislation.
