(Hatha al-Youm | Iraq News)- “The purse contained 200,000 Iraqi dinars (US $167), a passport, and a residence card,” one of the teenagers said, stating they split the money between themselves to pay off some debts and give the rest to their parents as part of their daily revenue.

“That night, we went back home around 4:30 – 5:00 am in the morning,” he continued, stating their parents did not complain about their late return home.

Hogir Aziz, a spokesperson for the Erbil Police, noted the parents of the teenagers are partly to blame for “failing to adequately educate their children” and failing to hold them accountable for their whereabouts at such a young age. 

“We urge people to contact local police and issue a complaint against cases of theft,” Aziz told Kurdistan 24.

“We also extend our call to parents to educate their children and monitor their actions during their formative years.”

Erbil police often search and detain beggars as well as children who work as peddlers on the streets, most of whom sell their products to drivers stuck at the traffic lights.
