CHR! PROHIBITS MINOR CRIMINALS TO BE ARRESTED?





The Commission on Human Rights (CHR) does not favor Senate President Vicente "Tito" Sotto III's proposal to lower the age for criminal charges. According to CHR Spokesperson Jacqueline De Guia, the role of the government is to shape the youth and imprisoning them at a very young age is not the answer.






It has not yet been confirmed that the imprisonment of children can prevent crime or may stop syndicates from using children, "de Guia said. He said the serious enforcement of the law would mandate local officials to build 'Bahay Pag-asa' for the rehabilitation of children who have violated the law.
