(SRSG CAAC) – The Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict, Ms. Virginia Gamba, welcomes the transfer of 50 children detained on national security related charges from the maximum-security adult Detention Facility in Parwan (DFiP) to the Juvenile Rehabilitation Center of Kabul province. The transfer, which took place on 7 November, is a result of continuing advocacy and technical support by the United Nations presence in Afghanistan and highlights the importance of dedicated child protection capacity in such processes. Following their transfer, these children will have better access to legal, social and educational services.
