(Child Soldiers International) – Over the last six months, Child Soldiers International has found worrying evidence of child rights violations by the Chadian army, and non-compliance with child protection commitments by the Chadian authorities. These include: inadequate provision of interim care to children formerly associated with the Séléka armed group, resulting in dozens of children absconding from a transit centre; the non-implementation of a protocol for the handover of children captured from armed groups, which had been signed with the UN; the alleged sexual abuse of children by Chadian troops operating in Central African Republic (CAR) in 2013 and the apparent failure of the Chadian authorities to investigate these allegations.
