State authorities shut down last week an orphanage after complaints were filed with the Attorney General’s office.
In a prepared statement, the state Family Development Agency said four minors were apparently victims of crimes in the orphanage whose name was not disclosed.
Agency Director Elianna Escudero said the complaint was filed on Sept. 8 for unrevealed crimes against two boys and two girls.
In order to avoid affecting the due process and to protect victims, the agency has no plans to disclose additional information, Escudero said. “We have a zero tolerance policy of behavior that affects the rights of boys and girls,” the director said.
