    Juvenile and Homeless Persons Law of 1955. - Legislation on-line

    Adoption: 1955-10-05 | LBY-1955-L-105197

    The Law was promulgated to address the welfare of child beggars, street children living outside the family fold, children without a family provider, children associating with persons of dubious character and children who collect refuse, waste and cigarette ends or who assist persons employed in prostitution and gambling. The welfare procedure entails the issuance of a ruling by the Juvenile Court - at the request of the Department of Public Prosecutions - for the child to be handed over to his rightful guardian, a charitable foundation or a State-recognised establishment. If the child returns to vagrancy within one year, the court issues an order committing him to an institution for juveniles, a charitable foundation or a recognised establishment. Juveniles may be detained until the court decides where to place them. Any person who incites or aids a vagrant juvenile may also be punished under the law.
