A BBC report which claimed that Czech children’s homes were still using cage beds illegally has been confirmed in part, said the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs on Thursday. At least one of the homes featured in the report was found upon inspection to be using the outlawed beds. A ministry spokesperson refused to comment upon the other care homes featured in the report. The use of cage beds was outlawed in Czech institutions in 2007, when the government bowed to intense international pressure. But, in January of this year, a BBC report claimed that the practice continued.
