Probe sought on 'rugby boys' in Tagbilaran City

TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol, March 26 (PNA) -- Street children involved in "rugby" sniffing finally drew the attention of Bohol officials after making headlines in a local newspaper.

Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) member Tomas Abapo Jr. brought up the matter during the latest SP regular session, citing his own experience with the kids.

Abapo, in a privilege speech, moved for a legislative action on the plight of street children whom he saw sniffing the solvent.

He said that if these street children, aged eight to 14, will be neglected, they will likely become criminals when they grow old.

Abapo shared that he personally observed these street kids sniffing rugby, begging by force, manifesting ill and rowdy manners as they shouted invectives when not given alms, and stealing food when not given such.

The matter was referred to the SP committee on social services for deliberation.

Citing his experience, Abapo said these street kids even snarled at him when he admonished them for sniffing rugby.

A local newspaper in Bohol ran a story in its March 22 issue about street children in Tagbilaran City sniffing rugby and harassing passersby as they loiter along major thoroughfares in the city.

These street children are different from the Badjao mothers and children who beg for coins from those who park their cars across the Island City Mall and motorists stopping at intersections of roads.(PNA)
