UNICEF's Juvenile Justice in Nepal series 1: Juveniles in Detention- Police custody Monitoring Report
PDF File Size: 180 KB | Download   
As in many countries, the situation of children and young persons who come into contact with the justice system, suspected or accused of committing an offence, has emerged recently as a matter of serious concern in Nepal. The country has been facing rapid social, economic and political change. The worsening situation of juveniles can be attributed to the interplay of several complex factors, including poverty,
discrimination, dysfunctional family life, and a worsening conflict, with its impact on the socio-economic and political situation of communities and society at large.
As seen in the most recent Concluding observations of the Committee on the Rights of the Child, the international community has expressed strong concerns over the issue of
Juvenile justice in Nepal. In the absence of a proper system of juvenile justice administration, there is very little information available of how the international
standards are being applied to each and every child and young person in conflict with the law in Nepal. Since July 2004, UNICEF Nepal has been supporting a national human rights NGO to conduct regular monitoring of juveniles in police custody in three districts, namely Kathmandu, Morang and Banke. This report is based on monitoring records between July 2004 and May 2005. The objective of this report is to highlight gaps between the on-going practice in administration of juvenile justice in Nepal and the international standards and norms. The findings and analysis also help to guide
stakeholders in prioritizing and identifying focus areas.The objective of this report is to highlight gaps between the on-going practice in administration of juvenile justice in Nepal and the international standards and norms.
