After social networks information that in the Municipality of Apatin, the service of a personal assistant was cancelled for a large number of children with disabilities denying them the right to education in that way, the Protector of Citizens launched own initiative investigation to control work regularity and legality of the local self-government unit.

Taking into account the possibility of endangering or violating the rights and best interests of the child as children with disabilities cannot attend school without a personal assistant, the Protector of Citizens has requested the Apatin Municipal Administration to inform him about all the circumstances related to the allegations on social networks, as well as about the measures and activities that it will take in this case.

The Municipality of Apatin should submit the requested data and documentation to the Protector of Citizens within 15 days.
