Geneva school yard being used to deal in crack


Increasing drug deals in the centre of Geneva could mean the closure of the school yard in the middle of Paquis.

The yard remains accessible to all 24 hours a day. But locals say it’s being used to deal in crack overnight.

Staff have to clean the area, which can contain vomit and urine, before the children arrive. But the area can still smell. 

A final decision on whether to close the yard still has to be made – but the councillor in charge of schools, Christina Kitsos, says she believes its obvious steps have to be taken to protect the children.
