President of the German Society for Child Welfare Heinz Hilgers said that the number of children who die of neglect or abuse in Germany increased under German Chancellor’s Angela Merkel rule, reports Coompact.


“In a supposedly rich Germany every week die 3 children not due to illness or accident, but because of the omission or usage of force. From 2012, Management of Youth has registered growth of cases that confirm the actual threat to minors, by as much as 8%”, said in a statement.


“And this despite the fact that the birth rate has decreased markedly”, said Hilgers.
