Over a half of children raised in Czech children's homes will go on to commit a crime, suggest figures released by the Interior Ministry on Monday. The figures come from a study commissioned by the Ministry, and looking at around 17,500 children, over a period spanning from 1995 to 2004. Interior Minister Ivan Langer reacted to the statistics by saying that the current system was not working, and that children raised in such homes were not being properly integrated into society. The study criticized what it called the 'fragmented' system of care for children in the Czech Republic. It also concluded that the child-care system was too bureaucratic. The government has promised to draft new legislation to tackle the problem by the end of the year.
