Mehedi's Story | Juvenile Justice in Bangladesh


UNICEF Bangladesh

Resumen

No justice system in the world is perfect but for children caught on the wrong side of the law in Bangladesh, one of Asia’s poorest countries, the experience can be harrowing. While Bangladesh has introduced the 2013 Children Act and made demonstrable progress in tackling a host of development issues affecting many of the country’s most vulnerable children, its justice system is still burdened by many child protection challenges including children arrested for minor crimes can be confined in a jail cell with adult prisoners facing the risk of violence or abuse though it is prohibited by law. Mehedi is one of the many young beneficiaries of an innovative partnership that brings together the child protection expertise of UNICEF, the world’s leading children’s organisation with the legal know how of DLA Piper one the world’s leading law firms. Cases such as Mehedi’s have led UNICEF and top international law firm DLA Piper to establish a pioneering partnership focused on improving the quality of care and protection for children who come into contact judicial systems.
