Protecting the rights of children

Dear Editor, How frustrating that when disgraceful shortcomings are pointed out in the State’s failure to protect and vindicate the rights of children that vested interests always blame a ‘lack of resources’. What resources were lacking when social workers, backed by the full authority of the Garda Síochana, removed two Roma children from their family homes on the specious pretext that they didn’t look like their parents?

Yours etc.,
