Abuse Alleged At Child Care Home
The Social and Child Protection Directorate has suspended the head of the Kossuth Zsuzsa Child Care Home in Bicske with immediate effect, ordered an internal inquiry and filed a report to police after it learnt about suspected sexual abuse of children.

RTL Klub reported on Wednesday that one of the former inmates of the institute, a 22-year-old, claimed that the director of the home for years molested several children and that he himself had an intimate relationship with the accused for four years.

Another former resident said he had a sexual relationship with the director for eight years from the age of 12.

The director has run the institute for 26 years. Five years ago two tutors raised the issue at several forums within the institution, but there were no consequences.
