ICJR calls for immediate reevaluation of Juvenile Justice System Law

The Institute for Criminal Justice Reform (ICJR) has urged the government to reassess the Juvenile Justice System Law as the vast majority of underage offenders are still subject to imprisonment, depriving them of their basic rights.

A recent ICJR study found that 93.75 percent of 304 underage offenders served prison sentences throughout 2018 due to the law. Furthermore, the study also found that the prison time of a number of youth offenders exceeded that which was handed down by the court.

ICJR researcher Genoveva Alicia Maya said in a statement issued on Thursday that the majority of underage offenders were not given a fair trial, nor were they provided with a legal representative during the investigations of their purported crimes.

Only 3.9 percent of the study’s respondents were aided by an attorney in the investigation phase, according to Genoveva.

“The government must understand that putting children in correctional facilities means subjecting them to a myriad of vulnerabilities, considering the poor condition of the country’s penitentiaries,” she said.
