Children imprisoned in Manila

Pro7 investigative report 15 minutes, Manila / Philippines

Imprisoned children – unthinkable in Europe, but sad course of life in the Philippines. Under inhuman conditions minors are detained here for trivia-reasons such as „lingering in the streets at nighttime“: No possibilities to wash, a plasticbucket serves as toilet, penned up like animals. Nine-year-olds have to wait for months just to have a hearing. Father Shay Cullen has been fighting for years against this system and tries to get at least the jungest ones out of there.
