Transcript of Young Offenders

Young Offenders
The Juvenile Death Penalty
The Convention on the Rights of the Child prohibits the imposition of capital punishment and life imprisonment without possibility of release for offenses committed by persons below 18 years of age.

However, Human Rights Watch is aware of at least 12 cases involving individuals sentenced to death for crimes committed while under age 18
Pervasive Discrimination Against Woman And Girls
Law and practice deny women equal enjoyment with men of fundamental rights, including legal standing before the courts.

Mothers cannot represent their children in legal proceedings because they lack guardianship.

Foreign girls under investigation, facing trial, or whom a judge has ordered detained, are held in adult detention centers
