Protect the Rights of Children
PDF File Size: 143 KB | Download   
The United Nations' Children Fund (UNICEF) and the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal (OHCHR-Nepal) are increasingly concerned
about the use of children in demonstrations by the Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) which places them at risk of violence and exposes them to potentially dangerous situations. There are alarming and confirmed reports of large numbers of children present in demonstrations and in some cases actively participating in the enforcement of the bandh. UNICEF and OHCHR urge all parties to respect the provisions of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, to which Nepal is a signatory, and to take all necessary measures to avoid
exposing all boys and girls under the age of eighteen to risk of harm. People under eighteen must not be forced, coerced or bribed into participating in political activities. Children should not carry weapons that can inflict bodily harm under any circumstances.
