UNICEF has expressed its deep concern at reports that children have been injured, arrested and detained in the recent demonstrations in Kathmandu and other cities. “Children have no place being near demonstrations that could turn violent,” UNICEF Representative, Dr Suomi Sakai, said today. “It is of great concern that children, some under the age of 10, have been seen taking part in demonstrations and have been injured and arrested. “While children do have the right to freedom of expression under the Convention on the Rights of the Child,
their parents and guardians also have the right and responsibility to ensure that children are exercising their rights in an age-appropriate manner.
“Organizers of any demonstration or public gathering have a responsibility to ensure that children are out of harm’s way, particularly children without family, such as street children who have no-one to look after them and are even more vulnerable. “In particular, organizers need to ensure that demonstrators are not asking children to help find tyres, stones, pieces of wood or other potential missiles. “UNICEF also has received some very disturbing reports from the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal (OHCHR-Nepal) that children in demonstrations have been arrested, beaten following arrest
and have been detained, sometimes with adults.
