Opinion

Justice systems designed for adults often lack the capacity to adequately address the protection of the rights of juvenile offenders and are more likely to harm than improve a juvenile offender’s chances for reintegration into society. To resolve this problem, Juvenile Justice System was incorporated in criminal legal system of Pakistan in the year 2000. Unfortunately, this law was not a perfect piece of legislation for juvenile offenders and was ultimately declared annulled by the Lahore High Court. Juvenile offenders continue to be treated as hardened criminals thus deflecting the attention from rehabilitation to punishment.
