The Protector of Citizens, on his own initiative and based on media reporting about a case of domestic violence when a man killed his wife and two daughters and then committed suicide, launched an investigation to control work regularity and legality of the Social Welfare Center in Sombor, the Provincial Secretariat for Social Policy, Demography and Gender Equality and the Ministry of the Interior.

The Protector of Citizens has requested SWC Sombor to submit a detailed report on the activities in this case within 15 days, focusing on data about measures and activities, if any, that they have taken to investigate and prevent domestic violence.

The Protector of Citizens has requested the Provincial Secretariat for Social Policy, Demography and Gender Equality to perform expert supervision and inspect the actions of SWC Sombor employees in this case and to submit a report within 15 days.

The Protector of Citizens has requested the MOI to submit within the same deadline the statement on acting in the specific case, including the data whether there were previous reports of violence in this family, and if so, to submit the statement on acting upon these reports of violence.
