Parents in the province of Cadiz, Spain are demanding the removal of Teresa Jimenez Vilchez, minister of education in Andalusia, for having violated the privacy of children by publishing their names in the region's official newspaper.
"We demand that the president of Andalusia, D. Manuel Chaves immediately dismiss the Minister of Education, Mrs. Teresa Jimenez Vilchez," parents expressed in a statement. They also urged the Prosecutor's Office of Children to intervene.
The list of children was published on October 1 containing, "the first and last names of 91 minor children of objectors," in the Official Gazette of Andalusia.
"We understand that the counseling of Education Government of Andalusia has infringed the right to personal and family privacy of minors," as the inclusion of their names "can only have malicious intentions," the parents added.
