Assessment of Children and Young Persons in Prisons, Correction Home and Police Custody in Nepal
PDF File Size: 145 KB | Download   
Despite the ratification of several multilateral human rights treaties, including the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC),and the enactment of the Child Rights Act, children who come into conflict in Nepal with the law face serious problems within the existing criminal justice system. Nepalese law guarantees that children will not be imprisoned, but will be protected from torture, ill treatment and abuse, separated from adults, and given access to family members and lawyers. In addition, the government has a responsibility to adopt non-custodial measures, harmonise national laws in line with international treaties, provide adequate training for law enforcement officials, use imprisonment as a last resort, and find alternative ways to deal with juveniles in order to avoid the possibility of children being stigmatised by the formal justice system. Over the past few years, Nepal has faced the growing problem of juveniles who come into conflict with law within the criminal justice system; their treatment in custody has had a severe adverse impact on their lives.
