One photo that is captured at the heart of Belgrade with amazing speed is spreading through social networks. It is one of those who at the same time awakens in us, sadness and despair, breaks the heart and puts blood in the veins.
"Belgrade 29.9.2018 … Terazije … Belgrade …", is short in the description of the photo posted on Twitter.

Left at the mercy of the city of two million dollars without any supervision, this girl leads the most difficult life struggles in which they barely win, and they are much older.
Although the use of children with the goal of begging is not uncommon in the streets of the capital, it is impossible not only to ask this little child to go to the street, who are the parents who use their daughter as a child. form of income and what is the fate of the family that is their child instead of the playground, sends him to play on the street.
It should also be remembered that such action is strictly punishable by law, and its organization is even stricter. Namely, everyone who arranges begging or is used by minors, can get a jail sentence of up to 60 days. At the same time, the law also prohibits the departure of such young children without supervision.

Glavaš: "I condemn the most abusive child abuse"
Acting Secretary for Defense, Emergency Situations, Communication and Coordination of Civil Relations Darko Glavaš said he was familiar with this case.
– The most potentially possible things such as these should be punished, although the fact is that more and more children are being abused on the streets, especially socially vulnerable groups. It is being done intensively with the municipal police and the social work center, but first with the secretariat for social protection, which are making great efforts to resolve such issues – Glavas said.
