MANILA, Philippines — The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) yesterday urged the Philippine government to fully implement the Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act of 2006 as it opposed the measure lowering the minimum age of criminal responsibility to 12 years.

UNICEF Philippines representative Lotta Sylwander opposed the government’s move to lower the age of criminal liability from 15 to 12.

“If the law is amended, we will see young kids going to prison and trained basically as criminals. They will leave prison as hardened criminals instead of being restored back to their normal childhood,” Sylwander said.
