Births are unregistered
WHILE noting the measures taken by the State to ensure that all births are registered, the committee remains concerned by the large number of births that remain unregistered.
Member of the UN Human Rights Committee, Christof Heyns said, the State party should expedite its efforts to register all births on its territory and continue to mount public and family awarenessraising campaigns concerning birth registration, particularly in rural areas.
Establish “The State should also take measures to establish juvenile chambers with trained judges to ensure that juveniles are treated
in a manner commensurate with their age, specific needs and vulnerability,” he added.
He said the correctional services in the country should raise the minimum age of criminal responsibility in accordance with international standards and ensure the full implementation of international standards for juvenile justice. They should ensure that children are kept separate from adults in detention.
