CIVIL AND POLITICAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE QUESTIONS OF TORTURE AND DETENTION : REPORT / BY THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON TORTURE AND OTHER CRUEL, INHUMAN OR DEGRADING TREATMENT OR PUNISHMENT, MANFRED NOWAK
Committee on the Rights of the Child has expressed deep concern about the practice in Mongolia
of keeping children in pre-trial detention for a prolonged period; that juvenile first offenders are
sentenced to imprisonment for petty crimes; and in relation to the difficulties faced by children to
be released on probation (CRC/C/15/Add.263, paras. 66-68).
REPORT OF THE WORKING GROUP ON ARBITRARY DETENTION : ADDENDUM
The Human Rights Committee, in its
concluding observations on Argentina’s third periodic report (CCPR/C/ARG/98/3), expressed
deep concern that prison conditions failed to meet the requirements of the International Covenant
on Civil and Political Rights (CCPR/CO/70/ARG, para. 11). (...) The delegation saw undernourished,
not to mention starving, children in ragged clothes and shoes, suffering from scabies; such
children were prevented for months on end from seeing daylight or breathing fresh air. This
harsh treatment of children is completely counterproductive: instead of helping to rehabilitate
them, it drives them to greater violence.
