Thessaloniki: New complaint about the structure of the disabled
A new testimony to the structure for Disabled at Thessaloniki for which it is complained that they hid children’s deathstestified on Sunday the mother of a child who had been accommodated in the disputed facilities, raising new questions about the operating conditions there.
Speaking to OREN, Mrs. Evangelia Nouni spoke about child who suffered burns but they hid it and complains of a lack of care for the guests in the structure.
“There are many other things that are not learned. For example I mention now, there is child which was burned at Easter, which has not come to the surface. The child has no parents. Do they ever know exactly what happened, the child went to the hospital, he was transferred after a few days. I’ve been to the courts, I’ve given a statement, I have no problem reporting,” Mrs. Nouni initially said.
Especially in the case of Paris, of the 25-year-old who was beaten and died in the structureshe said that “he also had an escort inside the institution, but after Covid everything was prohibited, the children could not go out, my son could not even go to school, we took him for a year and a half, we could not do it any longer”.
As hers says child he was not abused but knows that three other people died in the structure. “They didn’t dare hit mine. I didn’t see my child hit. She used to have some swellings on her thighs, but they passed, that is, they never happened again. I can’t blame anyone, I don’t know who, I was asking my child, he didn’t tell me anything, but I know that next to my son, three other children died.”
“I don’t think these deaths were due to beatings, but they happened next to my child, who was a minor. And there were people who didn’t go to hospital afterwards, that is, they had chronic problems and left like that. They left like that. I don’t think these deaths were from abuse, but they were from another kind of abuse, from a lack of care,” she adds.
As he says about this one structure, “the incidents were mixed up. In other words, in autism there must be calmness. And there was no peace in there. Autistic with mental retardation at the same time, people of different ages, for years this, for years. In the last few years my son was alone in the room and in the neighboring ones there were three and four children together because they did not dare to put mine together. He had outbursts. As I know with children who have outbursts, there was no intervention. Nothing was being done for autistic children, nothing.”
From the side of National Transparency Authority that he will proceed with an inspection of child protection and care units in Attica.
In particular, with its announcement, it states the following: “Initiated by press reports about the incident of abuse in preventive structures for the reception of minors and following planning based on a risk analysis, the EAD is going to carry out checks in six (6) child protection and care units of Attica. The object of the audit is focused on the examination of persons, the determination of any conditions of abuse or gross disfigurement of the guests, the management actions of their administrations and in general the quality and business of the facilities, equipment and services provided by the audited entities. »
