According to the lawyer, the requirements include “that the family’s religion be the same as that of the child, that the family submit the criminal record periodically to the competent authority, that a suitable environment be provided for the care of the child, and many other requirements such as the ability to spend.”

He continued, “The requirements take two months or more to submit papers stating that the family has fulfilled them. Therefore, the Public Prosecution Office decided in an urgent and temporary humanitarian manner to hand over the child to the family that found him until the rest of the requirements are met.”
