[Hungary] There was no incident of sexual abuse at the Budapest children's care home

09 Aug 2017

Back in September 2016 media was full of a news alleging that a care worker at the Budapest children's care home of TEGYESZ has sexually abused one of the children. The Ministry has immediately launched an internal investigation while the police has tarted criminal proceedings.

The online portal Index is reporting now that the Budapest police has closed its investigation as there was absolutely no evidence that this incident has happened. The internal inquiry of the Ministry also came up with the same conclusion. However, child protection as a whole has suffered a major loss of face due to the media campaign, which was already assuming the allegations were true.
