10 arrested in central Colombia for torturing disabled children

written by Adriaan Alsema October 20, 2017

Ten people were arrested after authorities found out that mentally challenged children were tied down and drugged in a government-contracted private clinic, authorities said Thursday.

The ten worked in a mental healthcare center that had been contracted by the Colombian Institute for Child Welfare (ICBF) in the central city of Ibague, Tolima.

According to the prosecution, the suspects were charged with torture after finding out they had tied down and drugged children.

The caretakers additionally imposed “military doctrine” on the children for punishment.
