Akbar says any children found begging on the street will be taken into state care
We have out a stern warning to the public, the Ministry will not tolerate child begging and we have activated our taskforce. We will continue to remove these children from the streets and put them in school and take their welfare into our own hands."
The taskforce is made up of officers from the Fiji Police Force, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Labor and Ministry of Women and Children.
